CHOOSING TOPIC


Assalamualaikum everyone..Are you still remember that I had mention before which is I need to find an essay topic for the term paper? My partner (Amalina) and I decide to do topic about the Decreasing number of academic performance among the secondary school students. Actually, we have several topics as a backup if Miss Zu does not approve our topic but since she approves it, we really feel glad and carry on with the topic. Before we present it, I already asked Miss Zu about the Obesity topic but she said it too common and many students had done it. Then, we try with the topic I said above and she approves it. Because of we do not enough material, so, Miss Zu asked us find it again. The process of finding the materials is DIFFICULT. I really do not know what to do. My partner and I still keep trying to find the material. The difficult part for us is when we want to find from the database and I think everyone face the same difficulty like us. Maybe. Lastly, we find it. Alhamdulillah. We find the material from online newspaper, online magazine, journal and from the internet itself. So, the result as below:
                                       
                                        BROAD TOPIC
             Problems of decreasing number in academic performance.
                                      
                                        NARROW TOPIC
The problems and solutions of decreasing number in academic performance among students in the school.
                                        
                                          FOCUS TOPIC
