How do I pick a topic for a paper?
First, write down all the topics you are interested in writing about. Then, write all of your examples/evidence for each one. Pick the one that has the most support, as this will be the easiest to write about.
What is the theme of this book?
First, write down some of the main plot points. Ask yourself what the connection between them is. Is there a reason for their inclusion in the story? What lessons do the characters learn? What objects or phrases show up throughout? These questions can lead you to discovering the theme of the story.
How do I analyze my reading assignments?
First, ask yourself a few basic questions about the reading. Who wrote it? Why do you think they wrote it? What is their goal? Then, you can go more in-depth with your analysis by determining how they meet these goals. This could include word choice, structure, organization, etc. Finally, put this information together to make a claim about the author or the piece itself.
