Chose your topic for your paper.

Researching your topic.
Next week you will write your introduction for your argumentative paper. If you have time, I suggest starting to research what “they say”. Remember you do not have to gather as much information as for your argument, but you need enough to understand and fairly present the opposing side. Remember to save the information that you will need to locate any sources again. You will make a work cited page for this paper.
