  • On a serious note – when deciding a topic, it is important to start big, but work small. If you topic is too big, you will find too much information! We started with a big big topic or Zombie Apocolypse (or rebuilding after a disaster), and are narrowing it down into smaller pieces.
  • Topic ideas: Solar power or alternative energy; Gardening; City planning; economic recovery after a disaster; New Orleans as a case study; Stress; public safety. Get into groups of 3 and brainstorm topic ideas. Be creative!
