Develop topic

Take the time to define what your research topic will cover:

It will be easier to do your actual research.
You will be better prepared to look for the information you need.

Be sure to understand the assignment your teacher has given you: the length of the project, what type of information sources are needed, how current the information needs to be, and what citation and format style to use. If you’re unclear, ask.
