Tips for choosing a topic:

  1. Read or watch news stories to learn about current events.
  2. Pick a topic that you are interested in learning about.
  3. Your paper is an argumentative essay; therefore, you need to pick a topic with more than one point of view.
  4. Search library databases for sources to help you pick a topic. Searching for sources will help you narrow down your topic and allow you to make sure there are enough sources for you to use.
