When you are writing a research paper, it is so important to make sure that you choose an interesting topic because it will make it so much easier to do research on the topic and so much easier to write about a topic that you like. When it comes to deciding on a topic, you should brainstorm any idea that you can think of. You can also look through your textbook or notes to get ideas on what you want to write your paper on.
You will want to choose a topic to write about and then decide what aspect you will discuss about it. For example, you can talk about the effects of deforestation or you can take the stand and talk about the causes. You can talk about how it affects humans and how it affects animals. You will choose a general topic and then create a statement about the topic. This statement is what you will want to prove in your paper. You will create an outline so that you can organize your ideas. You will work to prove your statement and the outline helps you decide what reasons should be presented first and in what order to present the other reasons to make the paper the most effective. Create a statement and then work to prove it.
