Remember that you will have to create a research question and a thesis.  The above are just general themes and ideas.


See Mr. Rakoczy for books that might get your started.  I will not deny you sources!  Half of researching is asking those who know where to find the information you need! (librarians, archivists, teachers, etc.)
