Getting Started with Research: Picking a Topic

Topic Design Steps:

Step 1:

Review Assignment: What's the assignment? What are the expectations for your work? Are there any specific requirements?

Step 2:

Brainstorm: Pick a topic that interests you! What do you want to learn more about?

Step 3:

Find Background Information: Reading an overview of a topic will allow you to better understand the landscape of what you are researching. This can also help you narrow in on a specific idea or issue.

Step 4:

Focus Your Topic: Remember to stay flexible while picking a thesis statement, if a topic is too broad or too narrow it will be hard to research. So keep in mind - picking your topic is research too!
