Question:

I am having trouble finding a topic for my class essay, what should I do?

Answer:

If you do not have an assigned topic for your essay, the first step is to define the purpose of your essay. Are you wanting to educate someone on a topic, present data, create a how-to guide, or possibly persuade someone. If you have trouble determining the purpose of your essay look at what the assignment is asking for you to write. Some basic types of papers include analytical papers (evaluation or break down of an idea/issue/event), expository papers (provide explanation of something), or argumentative papers (make a claim and provide evidence). Once you have determined the purpose of your paper the next step is to brainstorm. Write down any and all ideas that fit the purpose of your paper. When all your ideas are written out get rid of any topics that you think are too challenging, not relevant, or that you're not interested in. This will make your list shorter and you can compare and contrast the leftover topics, considering the pros and cons of each.

Answer:

Information-seeking behavior varies from person to person and refers to how people search for, use, and share information in information channels. People seek information for many reasons, such as work, hobbies, enjoyment, goal achievement, or need. How they search/trust/use this information is affected by education, socioeconomic, and cultural factors about what information to trust, where to get information, and if that information meets their needs. There is uncertainty and vulnerability in seeking information, which can lead people to not acquiring appropriate/relevant information or accepting information from unreliable sources. Information-seeking can be passive or active for the seeker. Passive information seeking includes passive monitoring or incidental acquisition of information by the seeker; while active information seeking involves looking for certain information through directed or undirected activities, such as searching or scanning through materials. Advances in technology have changed information seeking behavior, as information seekers rely more on Google searches or blogs to meet information needs. Teaching information seekers how to analyze information online has become critical, so that seekers can determine what is a reliable information source while avoiding online scams.
