Here are some examples of ideas thatyou might think about:Double standards for womenDiscrimination against gays and lesbiansMarital rapeHomosexualityGender bias and stereotypes2. FreewritingAside from brainstorming, you can also use freewriting to generate ideas. Freewriting is similar tobrainstorming in that you just write any idea that comes to your mind. That catch is to put downinto writing the ideas that you think of so that later on you will be able to generate ideas andnarrow them don into a single topic for your paper. For example, you want to write gender biasand stereotypes, which is still a very broad topic. You can narrow it down through freewriting.3. Clustering.The other step that you did in the activity is called clustering, or ballooning, or mapping. Thistechnique provides graphic representation of your ideas, allowing you to visualize theconnections and/or relationships of your ideas. Write your topic at the center of your paper thencircle or box it. Think of subtopics and place them around the center circle until you feel that youhave developed all the subtopics fully.
