"Your site is quite impressive. I actually printed the resume and cover letter section because my partner is presently writing one and I myself am writing cover letters for the new development stage I am in. I did get a lot out of the cover letter material and believe it helped me to redo my cover letters to be more effective. It's great when there is a document to follow that tells what should be there and what should not."

Term paper/research paper strategies for narrowing and filtering an academic topic in order to generate a research question and outline for your term paper.

The first strategy is to apply three tests that any workable research topic must pass: a topic must be debatable, plausible, and consequential. The second strategy is a series of filters to further narrow the research topic: theme, place, time.

Last, you will use the two strategies (tests and filters) to generate a research question to guide your search for sources and information.
