How to pick your topic

When picking your topic, it helps to not do the same topic, which has been done, and really it does not have anything new to say. Unless new information has recently come to the forefront, it will not make your paper stick out. If new information does come out, and it is on a topic, which you have an interest in researching, check the source, is the writer reputable, what has the writer published, and is this argument used to prove arguments, and if so how? When you look for a topic, there is going to be information out there, just how much, and how reliable it is, remains to be seen. You can look at sources online, as well as a number of books, and articles. Though always verify the sources, and how reputable the scholar is.

Researching your topic

Your research topic can be very extensive, and you have a variety of sources. Though the sources may not always be the best. I like the Internet, and there is some great material on the Internet, but there is some information, which is not good. If you’re only going to be using the Internet as your source to research, look at the websites, blogs, and who do they represent. If you’re obtaining information from another university, make sure you find out what the policies are when using information from another institution, much of it is usually free, but always double check. If you’re using information from a blog, check on what are the rights involved, blogs can be good sources, but once again there may be copyrights involved so check what are the legalities involved.

Presenting your topic

When you are presenting your topic, if you’re presenting it to a teaching assistant, or a professor will you be using a number of props, such as power point presentations, video presentations, as well as reading from your writing? If you’re bringing information, which is from a new perspective you need to give some history of who or what the source of this information is, and are you supporting it, or offering criticisms, and why this information is not credible. Make sure your arguments can be verified as well.
