One topic that I am interested in doing is on the show The Gilmore Girls. I would look into how Amy Sherman came up with the idea of a mother daughter show. This topic is important because I love the show and it was a huge part of my life, well it is still part of my life because it is a timeless show that will last a few more years with the re-runs. I would bring new research on how the show came to be because all the sites I have been to are just fan sites. They don’t have much on them about how Amy created the show. They just have cast and crew listings, fan mail addresses, different facts about the actors and characters, show listings, and summary plots. My research question would be How did Amy Sherman think of a TV series that was about a single mother and her daughter? I could write how she got the idea then include clips of different scenes, the theme song and pictures of the show.
My second topic is Myasethenia Gravis. I want to know how people get the disease and why it is so rare. This topic is important because my dad is one of the people that has this disease and I would like to see a cure come about or find a way to prevent the disease from attacking. I could help further the research with this paper and I could help bring more awareness to the disease along with educating people on what it is. My research question could be What causes MG to attack people? I could write down somethings and most likely tape my dad doing certain activities then compare them to one of my classmates to see how MG affects the muscles.
My third topic is Religion. I would compare different Religions. This topic is important because my grandma, my parents and I all go to church. I would bring something new to the discussion by finding out what all the different religions are and compare them all to one another to see how closely or not closely related they are. My research question would be How are all the worlds religions related to one another? I could experience the religions around Indiana and gather the information from the internet then I could put a video together that represents them.
My fourth topic is Animals. I want to know why dogs are considered mans best friend, why not cats or hamsters? This topic is important because I’m probably not the only one that woners this same thing. I am not really sure what I could bring to the research/discussion that is new.My research question would be Why are dogs considered mans best friend? I could report stuff then add in like charts and graphs to help my point.
My fifth and final topic is Bowling. I want to know how and why it was invented. This topic is important because many people are professional bowlers and many others enjoy the sport. I’m not really sure what I could bring to the table that is new. My research question would be Why did someone invent a sport that throws a ball against pins? I would report some of the information then use graphs, photos, and vidoes to help support my theory.
