I was at first thinking about doing the pros and cons of solitary confinement, but my teacher said it was too vague and that I should do treatment of prisoners in general?

However I am having second thoughts and was considering doing something on current conflicts? such as the Palestinian crisis?

Any thoughts?

Do what you're most comfortable with and on something you have more knowledge on instead of picking a topic you'll have to research a lot.

It depends really; partly on how much you know already about the topics and partly on how passionate you are about them. So if you did you the prisoners one, how well do you know the topic already? Is it something you passionate about - on either side of the argument? Do you feel you could spread the argument out for, is it 1200 words? Of course you have to do research and you will have references but it helps if yes is the answer to the questions above.
And again the same applies for the conflicts one - although that one would pose more difficulties ie the reliability of certain sources and the depth to which these conflicts go, especially the Palestine/Israel conflict.

When I done it last year I did my discursive on bringing back extinct animals and the ethics of it..."Should we be allowed to use recent advances in genetic technology to bring back extinct animals?" was the question I used. I had already read a lot into this topic and related issues and scientific basis so felt it would be easy for me to show the marker a) my arguments and b) my knowledge/passion.
Then, of course, it's down to the actual English of it and how you word certain lines and the style you write it in (plus all the fun grammer).

Hope this helps, any other questions or if this wasn't useful and want me to expand on anything just ask!
