Sometimes it is hard to pick a topic for your research.
1. Brainstorm. Think of at least five possibilities that fit the assignment.
2. Pick a topic that interest you. You'll be spending time reading and thinking about it, so it should be something that interests you.
3. Match your topic to the scope of the assignment.
4. Ask a question. This may not be necessary every time, but asking a question can be a helpful way to frame your research.
5. Make sure your topic fits the assignment. Reread the assignment and if you're not sure, check with your instructor.
