Developing a Topic

Important questions to ask yourself when choosing a topic:

  • What interests me and will continue to interest me?
  • Does my instructor approve of this topic?
  • Is this topic too broad? Will I find too much information?
  • Is this topic too narrow? Will I find hardly any information?
