Start off with the Social Issues Databases below to get some great background information on your topic!
Use these databases to get familiar with your topic. These sources should be mined for key words and specific information that will help narrow your topic. Consult each source bibliography and links to related resources for more research.
Remember viewpoint articles are opinion pieces designed to persuade. They should not be entirely avoided, but they should be evaluated for bias and are most helpful to evaluate solutions.
