Gather background information on your topic to help you:
Encyclopedias, Biographies, or Handbooks are all excellent places to find more background information.
Writing your research question/thesis:
Your topic of interest is typically phrased as a one sentence statement at the beginning of your project. This statement (or thesis) should be specific. It will also need to cover what you are discussing in your paper and should be supported by the evidence you present.
It's okay if your thesis statement changes as you write! Research is an iterative process, so you may go through a few thesis statements before you finish your project.
If you feel lost, contact a librarian or your instructor -- they're able to help you think about your topic and focus it as necessary.
