Topic selection for your project is due this week. You can pick any topic from this course including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Domestic Violence
  • The War on Drugs
  • Legalization of Marijuana
  • Gun Control
  • Terrorism

Start researching your topic and in 1-3 sentences, summarize what you want to include in your final project. In your summary, share 3-4 subtopics that will be discussed in your paper. Be sure to craft an organized summary to reflect the main idea of the paper and to explain fully the material that will be covered.

In your thesis statement, be sure to assert the main idea in a specific, clear, and complete sentence that is complex, innovative, and original. Overall, the thesis statement needs to indicate the main idea of the paper and identify the position you’ll be taking regarding the topic.

  • Example: Domestic violence affects the victim and the children involved by impacting them in social, psychological, and economic ways.

Throughout your summary and thesis statement, be sure to express complex ideas in clear and complete sentences that summarize the main points. Also, in your summary, be sure to identify the subtopics that you will be describing. In the example below, the subtopics are identified clearly by using numerals to highlight them.

  • Example: I chose to write my paper on domestic violence as it is an issue that happens every day in the United States. Domestic violence can be verbal, physical, or even sexual in nature. The subtopics will include (1) that domestic violence affects the victim and the family in many ways. Also, (2) many times the victim does not want to press charges either because he or she is afraid, or the abuser is the breadwinner of the family. Lastly, (3) many times the abuser gets a slap on the wrist when it comes to punishment as the courts can be inconsistent with sentences.

The topic selection and explanation are important parts of your paper because, in this exercise, you are laying the foundation upon which your paper will be built. Carefully consider your topic and reach out to your instructor if you have any questions or need any guidance.
