Finding a Good Topic is Hard These Days
MetadataShow full item record
When a professor assigns a paper, the most daunting task for a student usually involves figuring out how to get started. Many students blame the anxiety of writing a paper on the fact that they do not know about what to write. Thus, they decide on a topic that their teacher suggests or something they may have overheard in passing. Then, they are stuck with an uninspiring topic, and their papers refuse to grow into anything, which leaves blank pages and an equally blank mind. Writing center tutors need to be able to help students brainstorm about the appropriate topic.
