Your #1 Source for Top Notch Thesis & Dissertation Writing Tips

Brainstorming process for your education dissertation topics:

The purpose, as stated multiple times, of a dissertation or “thesis” Is to draw your readers in and make them feel as if they cannot continue with their lives until they have read your material. A brilliant thesis not only informs and explains, but it also grabs readers by a hook and reels them in; your dissertations have to be eye- catching! That being said, the brainstorming process when deciding what thesis topics to talk about is absolutely crucial.

You could always go with the old trick to elaborate on your third brainstorming idea rather than your first or second, but why disregard your first idea or second idea if you don’t have to? The first thing to do is make a list of everything and anything that crosses your mind during a brainstorming session. Even if you think your idea sounds ridiculous or impossible to elaborate for a piece of writing, don’t let it slip away from you without the proper examination. Once you have written your list, choose your top ten ideas, trying to aim for having each of the ten differentiate from the others on your new list. Once you have made your careful selections, it is time to start narrowing them down.

As you look at each of your ideas on your list, visualize them in a full work of writing. Ask yourself these questions: “Can I fill an entire project using this for a thesis topic?”, “Will I struggle with elaboration with this idea?”, and above all, “Is this topic idea interesting or will it pose as a bore for my readers?” If you think hard enough and give yourself honest answers to each other, it should be easy to narrow your top ten list into a top five list. Once you have a top five list, it is on to the next step.

With your remaining five brainstorming ideas, start to write down some ideas for your paper as if you were choosing that topic, for each idea. Come up with basic skeletons of thesis statements you would use from your idea and map out what topics and subtopics can form from which ideas. Spend some time with this step because the last thing you want to do is fool yourself into selecting an idea that you thought would help you get the job done, only to have to stop halfway through your work and start over simply because you did not have enough information to work off of. Once each of these “maps” is done, the decision of choosing which idea is for you should come quite easily.
