Guiding Questions

If you have a broad topic that you are interested in, these questions might help you narrow it down to a more specific and manageable topic:

  • What specific elements of the topic are most interesting to you?
  • Why is this topic interesting to you?
  • Are you interested in how this topic impacts a certain geographic location? A particular community or group of people? 

If you are not sure of a topic yet, consider these questions:

  • What is a topic you think is important?
  • What do you want to learn more about?
  • What would you be excited to tell others about?
