    I would want to do it on Homelessness. Not only would it be interesting, you would captivate your audience...and furthermore...appriciate life at a higher level.

    Does any particular subject you list kind of tweak your interest? You're more likely to be successful if you work on something that seems interesting to you.

    Smoking is always in the news, as the number one preventable cause of many illnesses. Plenty of materials available everywhere and the social impact is unfathomable.

    If you could find something that is a problem in your immediate area, that would help. VickiRn is right about smoking. There is huge amounts of info on the internet. I would try to think of someone close to you or that you know who has experienced problems related to one of these subjects. For example, if you know someone who has survived cancer, they would probably be a good subject to interview. I have found that my teachers like it best if I make the subject more personal, and not just a bunch of statistics. Also, you may ask the teacher that assigned it if you are moving in the right direction. If you have a nice teacher, they really like to know that you value their opinion. Have an idea, present it to them and ask if they have any suggestions to add. If you go to them with a big blank, they will think you are not taking it seriously. If you know someone that was in the class before, they might be able to give you some pointers. Good luck.
