This week you will be choosing your research paper topic. I will provide some options below to get you started. All of the topics that I am providing you with have readings that accompany them in your They Say, I Say text that you are allowed to use as resources. Keep in mind that each of these is a broad topic. There are many subtopics that can be chosen based on your research and opinions. Also, you are not limited to these choices. They are just to get your started.
This week you will choose a topic and write 1-2 paragraphs detailing why you chose the topic and what your position is on the issue. You should also reference at least one article in your paragraph. It can be a paraphrase or direct quotation.
