Same Sex Marriages
The topic for your research paper must be argumentative; feel free to contact me for feedback, if you are unsure. You may not write about a topic covered in another essay for this course. The paper must be an argument, as presented in this course. It must have a clearly-stated major proposition, support of the major proposition, and a refutation. CQ Researcher, a database available to you via the College’s Library, is an excellent resource for both topics and articles!
Here is a link to areas to probe for topics (You are not limited to these topics.):
