You will conduct research for an argumentative research paper. Here are some things to keep in mind:
Choose a topic you care about: Is there something in the news you care about? Is there a social or political cause you are passionate about? Is there something in your daily life that you feel strongly about?
Understand your assignment: What are the requirements? How many, and what types, of sources do you need? What are the formatting requirements of your paper?
Select quality sources to strengthen your argument: Does research exist to support your position? Are there experts who have written on your topic? Can you produce counterarguements that will be convincing?
