By the time a student is in high school or college, it is time to reject topics that are too general in scope. Select a topic that is appropriate and legitimate for the academic level. As the academic level grows, the topic should become more specific and focused. For example:
THE CIRCUS—only for a 4th or 5th grade report;
RINGLING BROTHERS – 6th grade report;
HISTORY OF THE CIRCUS—7th grade report;
ENDANGERED ANIMALS IN THE CIRCUS—8th grade report;
ITINERANT LIFESTYLE OF CIRCUS PERFORMERS—9th grade report;
EVOLUTION OF THE CIRCUS CLOWN—10th grade research paper;
IMPLICATIONS OF CIRCUS LIFE ON “LITTLE PEOPLE”—Junior
THE CIRCUS IN THE WRITINGS OF SHERWOOD ANDERSON—Senior
CIRCUS POSTER ART: ITS HISTORY AND VALUE—college level;
THE CIRCUS AND FAMILY VALUES—college level research paper;
ECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE CIRCUS ON COMMUNITIES IN THE GREAT
PLAINS DURING THE 1930s—college level research paper.
