Your topic can be local, national, or international in scope as long as it impacts many people. Please stay away from "warhorse" topics such as abortion, legalization of marijuana, and lowering the drinking age. There are still lots of great topics out there that can be fresh. After narrowing your topic, come up with a rough thesis to help guide your writing in the form of Claim + Reason. An example: Sexist language in college textbooks is harmful because it reinforces negative stereotypes about many groups and individuals.

These can include: •Books •Periodical (journal, magazine, newspaper) * this may be electronic * •Government publication * this may be electronic * •Reliable, authored websites * a maximum of 4 websites may be used.
