EMPOWER - Choosing Your Topic: Page 2 of 13

What will you write about?

Once you understand the assignment, you need
to decide on a topic. To help with ideas:
notepad and pen
  • Browse for topics is articles and books that you read for fun or that relate to your course work

  • Talk to your classmates or your instructor

  • Go to the WSU Writing Center at 601 Lindquist Hall or call them at 316-978-3173

  • Browse a database like Academic OneFile and read abstracts (More about using electronic databases is in the module called Finding Articles.)

If you still need help, talk to a reference librarian at Ablah Library or through Live Chat available on the library homepage.
