Question:

How do I choose a topic for my writing assignment?

Answer:

When choosing a writing topic, be sure to select a topic that is: • Interesting • Manageable • Narrowed and focused • Broad enough to find adequate information for your research. • AND MEETS ASSIGNMENT CRITERIA! For writing topic ideas, consider these questions: • Was there anything discussed in class that you might be interested in exploring further? • Try skimming your textbook or course readings for ideas. • Is there an issue going on right now in the world that you want to understand more fully? When you have a broad topic, Brainstorm, brainstorm, and brainstorm again! For example, if you choose pollution as your topic, are you focusing on air, water or land pollution? If you choose to further narrow it to pollution of plastic materials, you could turn your topic into a research question by considering these: How does plastic garbage impact oceans? What effect does plastic packaging have on wildlife? How does plastic pollution effect human health? Keep in mind: It is common to modify your topic during the research process! You may find too much and need to narrow your focus, or too little and need to broaden your focus. This is a normal part of the process.

Question:

How do I determine the main keywords to use when researching my topic?

Answer:

Using a search strategy worksheet will be helpful. Step 1: Clearly state your topic in one or two sentences. Try to be as specific as possible. Step 2: Identify Your main concepts by underlining, circling, or highlighting them in your topic sentence(s). Step 3: List your main concepts and any synonyms or word variations. Let's use this topic as an example: I want to investigate the use of online social networks and how it affects cheating in colleges. The main concepts would be online social networks, cheating, and colleges. Similar keywords may include: Facebook, Twitter, social media, academic dishonesty, plagiarism, university, and higher education. You can then use these keywords to create a search string with Boolean Operators and quotation marks, such as: (“online social networks” OR “social media” OR Facebook) AND (cheating OR plagiarism OR “academic dishonesty”) AND (colleges OR universities OR “college students”)
