Pick a topic from below. The bullet points under each topic are SOME, but not all, points you need to consider as you write your paper. Topics are limited to only a couple of students per topic, so as soon as you check out the research on one and decide it is something you are comfortable with, email the professor at Floress@yosemite.edu If you do some preliminary research to decide on a topic, and want to ask about something not listed here, email the professor to ask.
