Steps for Discovering and Choosing a Topic

2.1 Info Search – read for overview of various topics

2.2 Continue thinking and jotting questions
and ideas in your notebook

2.3 Info Survey – what print and electronic resources
are available?

2.4 Try different topics on for “size” – how do they fit?

  1. How To Begin: You are given the topic to write about

    II. How To Begin: You are provided a list of possible topics to choose from

    III. How To Begin: Your professor leaves it up to you to choose a topic

    “Step 1: Under this scenario, the key process is turning an idea or general thought into a topic that can be recast as a research problem. When given an assignment where you choose the research topic, don’t begin by thinking about what to write about, but rather, ask yourself the question, “What do I want to know?” Treat an open-ended assignment as an opportunity to learn about something that’s new or exciting to you.”
