Activity: Microtheme 5:  Picking a Research Topic

After all of the research that you have done find a topic from either the book or your online research that you think that you could do a full blown research project on.  What is the topic? What kind of questions and problems does this topic bring up?  Think about how you could create a full essay from these ideas and use quotes from online sources to support your ideas. Your essay should have an introduction and thesis.  Also, create a conclusion.
