Research Topics with Explanation

Choose three (3) topics that interest you and identify two (2) credible sources for each topic.

Note: This is one of several parts that will build toward a final draft of your persuasive writing

research paper.

Write a two (2) page paper in which you:

1.

Explain the reason for selecting topic one, identify the audience, identify the purpose, and

provide a preliminary thesis statement.

2.

Explain the reason for selecting topic two, identify the audience, identify the purpose, and

provide a preliminary thesis statement.

3.

Explain the reason for selecting topic three, identify the audience, identify the purpose,

and provide a preliminary thesis statement.

4.

Identify six (6) credible sources (two (2) for each topic) that you would expect to use.

Your assignment must follow these formatting guidelines:

Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins

on all sides.

Note: You are not required to cite your sources CORRECTLY just yet, but I do expect

you to give enough information that I could look them up if necessary. Also, keep in

mind that a URL address is NOT sufficient and will not earn credit for this assignment.

This assignment is designed to allow you time to explore multiple topics before committing to a

single idea. Use this assignment to decide if the topic you want to spend the rest of the semester

with is REALLY the one you want to spend the rest of the semester with. Additionally, my hope

is that you come away from this assignment with:

Ideas about what will and will not work for a topic.

Ideas about the features of audience and purpose.

A basic understanding of the various elements of source citation and documentation.

An understanding of how to use technology and information resources to research

selected topics.

A clear and concise written work about selected topics using proper writing mechanics.

And of course, ultimately, a topic you’re interested in to spend the next several weeks

researching and writing about
