Problem/Solution Proposal Assignment Instructions
I will attach statement of Planned Research (HWK 6) 7 Annotated Bibliography (HWK 7) that you did for me maybe you still have it this is so important follow the instructions please
You will build from the research and analytical skills you developed thus far to identify a problem and advocate for a way to address, solve, or resolve that problem. Identify an audience who can benefit from and participate in the solution your proposal addresses. In other words, think of who is impacted or needs to know about this problem and solution and how best to reach that audience. Your starting point is to identify something you feel, with good reason, should be changed. Next, argue that a certain action (or series of actions) should be taken to respond to or resolve that problem. In setting forth your plan for addressing/resolving the problem, you will argue for it using organizational strategies such as cost/benefit, steps, or comparison/contrast. Your essay should also address questions of feasibility. Design your proposal in a format appropriate to a professional setting, including strategies like subheadings, graphs or charts to make data clearer, including relevant images, or featuring textboxes to highlight important information. See the suggestions in IC Chapter 5 and IC Genre Design Gallery.
First identify a problem and brainstorm solutions. You can take your cues from the readings included in the textbook, class discussions, or discussions with your instructor. Your proposal will:
• articulate your position or definition of a problem;
• explain who is impacted;
• argue for a specific solution/solutions to the problem;
• lay out a clear step-by-step implementation of the solution.
Before proceeding with your work on the assignment you must present your topic and text for your instructor’s review and explain what makes this text an interesting subject in a 1-page Statement on Planned Research (HWK 6). The topic must be approved by your instructor.
Doing research is fundamental to putting together an effective paper. To this end you must conduct research on your topic and develop an Annotated Bibliography of at least six sources (see HWK 7). The bibliography can be changed in the final paper, but the annotated bibliography text you submitted will be a graded assignment separate from your Essay Assignment.
As you are drafting, consider how you are supporting your claims about the problem. Refer to specific material from sources (using quotes and other concrete details) as evidence for your explanation of the problem and proposal for a solution. At the same time, consider the balance between description and analysis in your writing. Describe the problem and analyze it in order to make your argument that it should be solved in the way(s) you have identified. Consider carefully the organization and coherence of your piece. Develop clear paragraphs that support your thesis.
After drafting, revise and edit the Final Draft. You will give and get feedback in two stages for this assignment: a workshop for the problem section and a workshop for the full assignment (see dates on syllabus). It is essential you incorporate feedback (from peers, from the SVWC, or Smartthinking) at this step off the process based on two completed Feedback Sheets. You must also reflect on this process and develop a Review Memo laying out your steps.
The Review Memo is meant to make you cognizant about the writing process. Based on the feedback you received, lay out your process of incorporating feedback and what you learned about the writing process as such in a 1-page memo. Your answers will not be graded for grammar, but you should try to answer as specifically and clearly as possible. The memo should explicitly answer these four questions:
• What did you understand about the changes asked for in your essay by your reviewers? Be specific.
• What changes did you make during the revision process and why?
• What changes did you not make and why not?
• What did you learn about the research process and how will you use it in the next assignment?
• Format: Your final draft should be six to eight pages long, featuring at least six pages of writing, not counting the bibliography page (double-spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins). When citing your source(s), follow MLA or APA format (see IC Part 6 or Bowie State Course Library Guide for English 102).
