Choosing a topic:
•Knowledge of Topic - what knowledge of the topic do you already know or need to learn more about?
•Professional or Personal Experience - do you have personal or professional experience related to your topic or know someone in the field of expertise to talk with about your topic?
•Is it Research-Based or Anecdotal? Anecdotal research is usually based on observations (non-scientific observation) or personal accounts that may or may not be reliable rather than actual facts or research.
