Select Your Topic

Often your teacher will assign a topic or present you with a list of possible topics to choose from. You may also be asked to come up with your own topic. Remember to:

  • Choose a topic you’re interested in. What would you like to learn more about?
  • Find a problem that others may care about.
  • Look through your course materials for ideas.
  • Browse through current magazines and newspapers.
  • Consult an encyclopedia in your subject field.
  • Do a quick search on the Web.
