Project #58851 - Problem solving essay

Format: Online submission,typed and double-spaced, in MLA format like our previous essays.

Length: Approximately 3 ½ - 4 pages, or about 1000-1300 words.

 

The topic: For this essay, you will propose a solution to a problem that affects a community or group that you are a part of. Make this a small and specific community, a community that you are actually a member of: a family, a basketball team, a writing group, a band, a group of co-workers, consumers of a certain product, people who all go to a certain nightclub, etc. We discuss further in class the many possibilities for communities and problems to write about.

 

Form: This essay can take whatever form would be appropriate and effective for communicating with this particular group of people: an article in a newsletter, a posting in an e-mail newsgroup, an office memo, a letter to the editor, a letter posted on the refrigerator, a blog entry, etc. Of course, it’s going to be a little longer than most letters posted on refrigerators, but that’s ok.

 

Voice and audience: Address your essay specifically to your exact audience. Say what you would say to them, using the kinds of words and sentences that would best appeal to them. Remember that you want to persuade them that your solution is a good one, so appeal to their specific concerns and interests. Remember that even though you may be criticizing something about them or their behavior, if they are to accept your solution, you cannot offend them or accuse them. Write your piece in a way you think they will welcome and accept.

 

Structure: You will need to include five basic elements in this essay, as follows:

  1. Introducing the problem: You need to convince your readers that the problem you are discussing is indeed a problem. Explain what the problem is, what may have caused it, and why it matters. Your audience needs to care about the problem before it can consider your proposed solution.
  2. Establishing credibility:  Your piece needs to establish your credibility as a writer and problem-solver. It does this throughout, by means of your tone, your presentation of the information, your recognition of opposing ideas, your connection with and understanding of the problem, and your ability to understand all sides. It might also do it specifically, early on in the essay, saying something about your qualifications as a solver of this problem—your past experience, your expertise, etc.
  3. Presenting the solution: State your idea for a solution to your problem. The length of this part of the essay, the description and development of the solution, will vary depending on the subject matter. Your solution may be a fairly simple suggestion or may consist of a series of steps.
  4.  Arguing for the proposed solution: You will need to convince your readers that your solution is reasonable and will be effective. You can use personal experience, observation, hypothetical scenarios, examples, and/or speculations to support your proposal. You may talk with and interview people in the community. You will not be doing library or internet research, and you will not need to supply statistics or data. Make sure you have chosen a topic that will provide you with vivid examples from your own observation and experience.
  5. Counterarguing readers' objections, questions; counterarguing their preferred solutions: Throughout your piece, consider the objections or questions your audience may have, and recognize that they may have other ideas about how to solve the problem. In your essay, show that you understand what the objections are, and meet those objections, showing why your proposed solution is reasonable.
