For this first formal research assignment you will be asked to research ONE of the following topics. The purpose of this assignment is for you to choose a thesis/argument and then use credible research to support that evidence. Here are the topics you may choose from.
SUCCESS OR FAILURE AT COLLEGE:
For this topic you will continue to answer the question, why do students succeed or fail at college? Consider issues such as economics, culture and personality traits. My advice would be to focus on a specific reason and then provide a number of different pieces of research to support that reason.
So for example, you might choose â€œcultural,â€ and then list the reasons culture plays a role in success or failure at college.
Consider the positive or negative impact GM foods might have on the world. Create a research paper that argues for or against Genetically Modified Foods. Use evidence/research to support your stance.
Questions to consider.

Can they solve world hunger?

Should they be labeled?
