Topic (Concept) Mapping


I need 2 books and 5 articles?

Begin by thinking through the aspects of your topic. Ask
yourself
-
What do I know and what don’t I know?

The number of sources you need is
not a starting point. You will have to
review many sources before
choosing the best ones. At that time
you will narrow down the number


Genetically

engineered


food

Which foods
and why

After identifying
aspects you could
explore, think about
the subject
categories they come
under. You can then
do some background
research to refine the
information.


Concept Expanded


Possible searches:

Genetic engineering and food and safety

Genetic engineering and food and production

Genetic engineering and corn

Genetic engineering and food and (Europe or Common Market)


Examples for focus of paper:

Genetically engineered foods have not been proven to be safe (or argue the opposite).

Which foods are most likely to be genetically engineered and why?

Although genetic engineering of foods is easily accomplished, public attitudes will limit its use.

Why have the United States and Europe taken opposite approaches to genetically engineered foods?
