Now that have you some information, you can narrow your topic. Remember: the shorter your final paper, the narrower your topic needs to be.
- Is there a specific subset of the topic you can focus on?
- Is there a cause and effect relationship you can explore?
- Is there an unanswered question on the subject?
- Can you focus on a specific time period or group of people?
Describe and develop your topic in some detail. Try filling in the blanks in the following sentence, as much as you can:
I want to research _______(who) and _______(what)
because/in order to learn _______(why)
