Problem Paper

It must be at least 1000 words, word processed and double-spaced. Grammar, spelling, and overall neatness will certainly affect your final grade on the paper, so be sure to write carefully and allow yourself time to proofread and correct your paper before turning it in to me.

Your topic will be a specific problem of your choosing, and in the course of the paper you will introduce the problem, define the problem, explain why it is a problem. In your final paper, you will offer a practical solution to the problem and how you would implement that solution. So don’t select a problem that cannot be solved.

The problem should not be a personal problem although it may affect you as an individual. It should be a systemic problem that affects many people, but no more than a few hundred.

You will have to do library research for this paper and document your research according to the Modern Language Association system.
