ENGL 105 (Cooper)

Before you start...

Thinking allowed   Student thinking with a rainbow of colors coming from the top of their head   Large word cloud with many interconnected words and ideas   Person writing down ideas on index cards

Take a few moments to actually sit down and spend time thinking and writing about your topic.

Ask yourself questions like:

What do I already know about this topic? What don't I know? What do I assume? What questions do I want to answer? What do I want to say?

Once you've done that, go back and review what you've written and look for keywords, ideas, and themes that interest you the most.
