|Sub-Topic||Explore a specific aspect of your topic. EX: your topic is human cloning-->investigate government regulation of cloning.|
|Time Span||Choose a specific time period. EX: your topic is assisted suicide-->contrast public attitudes in the 1980's versus the 2000's.|
|Population||Focus on a specific age, sex, race, occupation, species or ethnic group. EX: on a topic in genetics, examine specific traits as they affect women over 40 years of age.|
