Key Concepts:

Question: You are writing a paper about the connection between suicide and cyberbullying in middle school. What group of key concepts best describes this topic?

Best Answer:

  • social media, bullying, suicide
  • middle school, cyberbullying, suicide
  • school, bullying, Facebook

None of these answers are wrong, the middle choice is simply the most accurate. If I were searching for articles on these topics, I would likely try all 3 of these combinations. Searching is not like math; there is more than one right answer.
