Choose a paper topic of YOUR choice as long as it is within the confines of this class. Want to discuss any topic we’ve discussed in class from ethnic groups, to individual histories, to systemic racism, to Manifest Destiny, or even modern topics that are relatable? Go for it. Make sure the topic interests you and that your question will be interesting to both research and write. Remember, this is going to eventually become your argumentative paper…meaning that you will argue a certain point and convince the reader of your stance.
