rhtitletopicchk.gif (5750 bytes)Once you have brainstormed and then narrowed or focused your topic, you need to check to make sure that the topic will work for you before you get too far into the research process.  Use the following checklist to help think about whether your topic needs to be modified or changed:

Does my topic interest me?
Will I be able to interest my audience?
Is the topic right for me? (too difficult/easy)

Can I find enough information?
Is my topic too big for this assignment?
Do I understand my topic?
