  • Your teacher
  • Your friends
  • The internet

Your teacher

Your teacher asked you to write an essay, right? So who better to know what some good topic idea would be to write about? You simple walk up to him or her after class and explain that you are having trouble coming up with an idea and you were hoping that they could give you some feedback on what they are looking for and what you could write about. It is as simple as that.

Your friends

If you get a group of friends together and start talking about different possible essay topics than it is likely that one of them will be good for each of you. While you may not like the ideas that you have, one of them may be perfect for a friend to write the essay on. With a group of people your chances are even better of getting the right topic for you.

The internet

The internet is a vast resource that is used far less than it should be. If you have an essay due on the civil war but can’t seem to come up with a good angle on it than try typing it into a search engine. Type in civil war essay topics and lists will become available to you with more ideas than you could imagine. In this day and age with all of the information available to you on the internet it would be a real shame to let it all go to waste.

Make sure that you really like whatever topic you do end up with. The more you like the topic the easier it will be to research and to write. Plus once the essay is done it will read better because you were more interested when you wrote it. What you think of the topic matters. A lot of essays read poorly because the student was not interested in the topic. A simple topic change can also change a grade.
