Student Research Help - Topic

I need to know if my topic is good.

There are a few things you can do to make sure your topic is good:

  • Make sure it fits any requirements in the assignment. If your assignment requires you to write about a present-day fantasy author, don't write about J.R.R. Tolkien.
  • Make sure that there are at least two different, opposing sides to your topic, if that is necessary for your assignment. It's hard to make an argument about something that everyone agrees on.
  • Make sure your topic is not too broad or too narrow--see this page for more on how to determine that.
