write one to two substantial paragraphs answering these questions:
1. What topic are you interested in researching?
2. Why do you find the topic interesting?
3. What is the problem associated with the topic?
4. For whom does the problem exist? (A problem for one person might not be a problem for another person.)
5. How do you plan to do your research?
6. Where do you plan to find sources to support your claims?
7. Is your topic focused enough to tackle writing meaningfully about it in the scope of the culminating project?
