Talk to Others
Discussing your proposed topic with a classmate or friend can help identify aspects you hadn't previously considered.

Review
Read the assignment requirements carefully to ensure your topic is appropriate.

Be Flexible
If you can't find anything on your topic, consult a librarian or your instructor.  You may want to consider shifting to something different.
