Have a short discussion with a partner of the topics you could be interested to research.

Ask each other questions to make the topic more specific:

  • What do you know about this topic?
  • What kind of sources could you get?
  • What would be difficulties in finding information?
  • How can you make the topic more specific? Is it too broad for a 5 paragraph essay?
  • What kind of answers would you get?
  • Is it debatable?
  • etc.
