How to Select a Topic

Select and Define your Topic

  • Choose a topic or case that  interests you
  • Avoid a topics that are too broad("religion in school") and read about the issues to narrow it down ("prayer before football games" or "bible study groups")
  • Avoid  topics that is too specific or narrow  ("board members criticism of teachers")
  • When you have your topic focus, think of a research question for your research paper-For example, if your topic covers First Amendment Rights and Students, your research question could be “How do First Amendment Rights Influence Students in School?”
