Choosing Topics For An Essay About Martin Luther King
Uh-oh, your history teacher just assigned a research paper on the incredible, ground breaking Dr. Martin Luther King. Actually, it was assigned nearly two weeks ago and you've been putting it off, doing anything but your essay, because you don't quite know what to say about him. Sure, he gave moving speeches and helped change the world, but what are some other interesting facts about him? Everyone learns about him in school. Whether it be his protests for equal rights or his phenomenal speeches which included “I Have a Dream”.
- Everyone knows that though. What about the things Dr. King achieved that go unnoticed or simply are not taught in school? Well, lucky you! Here are some tips that can help you to easily search through different topics about Dr. King and learn as many facts as you need to enhance your paper and get you that 'A' that you deserve!
- To get you started, here are some ideas to help you find information super-fast. First, you can go to the library. Libraries are an easy way to get multiple reliable sources all at once. You can check out the books that you want or you could sit in the library and read through them right then and there. You don’t even have to read every word. Just scan through the pages until you find the information you want. Don’t forget to bring a pencil and some paper so you can jot down key facts and the name of the book that it came from.
- If a library is too out of the way, then you can try searching online for all kinds of trustworthy information. If you do not have a computer at home, you can always use a computer at your school. Even your public library has computers available for the public.
- You may also want to try a few other sites. Having more than one resource is always better and can further expand the concept of your essay. It is a good idea to use both books and online sources. Remember! If you use any direct information from a book or an online source, make sure you include an additional resource page and give credit to the authors.
Don't wait any longer! The information is just waiting to be found. Once you get started, it does not take long to find the information you need.
