1. Start by picking a topic that is particularly interesting to you. You are encouraged to write your paper on the same topic area that you
present in class.
2. Second: for your own purposes, summarize each and every chapter assigned to that topic, not just the chapter you present in class. By taking
copious notes on the topic, you will deepen your understanding and digest the material. As you read over the topic carefully, you will surely be
stimulated by ideas that will catch your attention.
3. Third: Develop a point of view regarding the material you are reading. This should organically develop as you pour over the literature.
