Do some research to learn the fundamentals of your subject matter. Be sure to note facts that are of particular interest to you. These facts will help you narrow your topic. Before you go on to the next step, use the worksheets to help you keep good notes about your topic as you go along. These forms will help you keep track of the sources you find.
Tip: At the end of your research process you will have more information than you need to write your paper. You will have to decide which sources to keep and which ones you will leave out. Be prepared to explain why the sources you will keep are relevant to your research.
