This is an interactive article that lists by way of suggestion no more than twenty-five of what could be the most interesting research paper topics that students could cover. It is particularly of use if teachers and/or lecturers give students carte blanche to choose freely their own research assignments.
The objective should always be to find something original to talk about and provide readers with a fresh perspective on already familiar subjects. Having said that, the challenge of recreating a top twenty-five list (in any form) will always be prevalent. Whether students choose these suggested topics or not, the purpose here is to encourage students to persist with the creative exercise of continuously seeking out new ideas. The first half of this list covers ancient events and/or similar subjects that have occurred before the twentieth century. The next half of the list deals with more recent occurrences and subjects that have come to the fore.
Here’s the first half of this random list, beginning with earth’s history before the advent of humankind.
Finally, more recent topics students could cover.
This list is by no means restricted but by now readers will have a clear impression of what it can do for them by way of encouraging them to explore and expand on topics and by seeking out original and fresh objective arguments, proposals or talking points.
