Choosing† A Topic
One of the hardest things for students is picking a topic that can be argued. While there are literally millions of topics in the world, coming up with one you feel comfortable with can be quite challenging.
You may choose any topic you like. However, here are some sample topics you may feel free to use. If none of these topics works for you, feel free to do the scientific method.† On a piece of paper, list about twenty topics you feel would be worthy of argument. Cut each of them out, so you have twenty pieces of paper, each with one topic written on it. Put all of them in a hat, paper bag, food container, etc. Then, shake the container. Finally, close your eyes; reach in, and choose out one. That is your topic.† Whatever you do, try choose your topic early. The earlier you complete this task, the sooner youíll be able to move on to Step IIóDeveloping a Thesis Statement.
