Getting started

Sometimes the hardest part of an assignment is choosing your topic, deciding what you want to talk about. Doing some reading to get an overview can sometimes help you decide on your topic and it can also help you with suggested vocabulary or keywords to use when searching for sources. For example, browsing through a specialized encyclopedia, or skimming an introductory book on a topic. Here are just a few resources that might be helpful:

General Help

Encyclopedias, general books

For any of these that are online, once connected look for the option of searching within the book.
