Topic Proposal
 
Part 1:  Quick Tips for Narrowing a Topic
Ask yourself the following questions:
Who is my audience? (Choose a topic that will be interesting to your audience.)
Will my topic fit the assignment? Is my topic still too broad for the length of the essay?
What kind of information do I need to fulfill the assignment?

Genetically modified foods
Components or Subtopics History of GMO foods, health aspects of, benefits for ending world hunger, disease/pest/drought resistance  environmental impacts
What components or subtopics are of most interest to you?
 
Health aspects of
What new questions do you have about your topic? Does eating GMO foods pose health risks? Does eating products of animals fed with GMO feed pose health risks?  Do these risk outweigh the benefits?  Do these same risk appear, in some degree, with non-GMO foods?
Formulate a working major claim Consuming genetically modified foods or food products produced by animals fed genetically modified feed poses no significant health risk to humans.

 
Your turn:  complete this process for three topic options, which you will narrow to one for your topic proposal.

Part 2:  Topic Proposal
 
Use the following questions to create a topic proposal.  Submit your proposal to the appropriate drobox in the course shell.
 
What is your research question?  What compelled you to develop this question?This question must be focused and clearly connected to your major claim (which serves as the answer to your question).  What compelled you to ask this question?  Did it come from a life experience?  Something you read or saw on TV?  A point raised in a discussion you had?  Making connections at this stage helps you understand what you reader might want to know as you develop your research.
 
 
 
What is your major claim? Your thesis must be an arguable point (an opinion stated as fact), rather than a petty observation about your topic. Make sure you use words or phrases that signal you are writing a causal analysis.
 
 
 
Who is your audience, and how will this impact the types of appeals you use?  Knowing your audience helps you understand what kinds of logos (evidence) to use and how to establish your own ethos.  You will also need to be aware of which emotions you want your audience to feel in order to accomplish your goal.
 
 
 
What’s the whole point of this topic? What motivated you to pursue this topic? So what?
Why do you care about this topic? Why should your readers? (Don’t be fooled by how short this question is – it’s of vital importance!)
