Is this a good IA topic? Formulating help?

Recommended Posts


I was thinking about doing something like How significant was the Treaty of Versailles as a cause of WWII? Is it too much that I already suppose it is a cause? Also, it doesn't seem really 'refined' to me, but I don't know how to formulate it better. Help?

Thanks in advance! :)

This question is too broad. Whole books have been written with this subject as a thesis, and an IA is only 2000 words maximum, with about 1400 for evidence and analysis. Perhaps you should look at one aspect of Versailles - territorial changes, reparations, War Guilt Clause, etc. - instead.

I also counsel my students to consider what it is they really want to write about - do you want to write about the Treaty itself? Or, are you interested in Hitler? Once you have a clearer idea of what you are really interested I think the question will narrow itself a bit.
