At this point, you have brainstormed and have chosen two potential topics. Now, make sure your topics will work well for research.
Adjust your topic ideas so they meet these criteria:
If your question can be answered with "yes" or "no," can you reword it so it's a "how" question?
Your topic should have more than one possible answer or solution. Your goal is to find out what different studies say about your topic, even if they contradict each other. Aim to learn something new, not to confirm what you already believe! Even if you're familiar with your topic, the articles you find might present different solutions.
A broad topic will get you too many articles, which is overwhelming. But a narrow topic makes it hard to find enough articles.
You can modify your topic later. For now, review these examples and think about how you could adjust the scope of your question.
Are your topics open-ended and not too broad or too narrow? Which one of your two topics do you want to use for the next steps?
