1. What is the subject of your topic?  Why did you choose this topic?

2. Give a brief description of your topic.  Use complete sentences, but only write 3-4 sentences.


3. Phrase your research topic as a question.  This is tricky: your question must be broad enough to cover a topic about which you will write a 900 word paper, but must be specific enough to focus your research.
