Your choice of topic for this assignment is very broad. You can really pick anything that is connected to US politics and government.
Use the links to the right to find ideas for topics.
Ultimately, your topic should be:
- Interesting to you.
- Not too broad.
Be careful of choosing something like, "The Constitution." There are just too many issues to be discussed -- if this topic is interesting to you, consider picking one Constitutional issue or amendment. (The next tab will also help you narrow your topic.)
- Not too narrow.
Some topics are personally meaningful but too localized or too recent for much to be written about them. If you find yourself focusing on an issue that is unique to your own neighborhood, for example, try broadening it out. Has this been an issue elsewhere? Why?
