From the 5 research topics you chose, brainstorm, research, and narrow your focus to ONE topic. Using the guiding questions below, write an overview of the topic and why you chose it:
Why is the topic interesting to you?
Is this a problem that you have encountered before and tried to “fix”? If so, what worked and what did not?
Do you see this as a common issue?
Is this a problem that you can solve? Do you think you have the skills to solve the problem?
Are there people to whom you can turn for advice?
What would it mean to you to solve the problem?
Note that you do not have to use all of the questions but you must offer a clear explanation of your chosen topic, why it is important to you, why do you want to do something about it, etc.
