Essay 2: Problem/Solution (Proposal) Essay

For class, we have been reading essays that discuss various issues surrounding education. Each of the authors have focused on specific educational problems in our society. Now it is your turn to discuss the issue of your choosing and present a solution that you think might help the issue or solve it completely.

 

You will write a thesis-driven argumentative essay using one of the following essays as evidence of a problem and/or solution. Present a clear and explicit thesis statement; it is best to place it at the end of your first paragraph as part of your introduction. Your thesis should have two parts: 1) an overview of the problem and 2) a statement about your own solution (one sentence) = two sentences total.

  • 50 Essays: “Me Talk Pretty One Day”
  • AOC: “Against School” (Canvas)
  • AOC: “From Degrading to De-Grading” (Canvas)
  • AOC: “Unconscious Plagiarism” (Canvas)

 

Assignment:

  • Present the problem: Using one of the above essays as support and drawing on your own knowledge and experience, argue one specific problem associated with any cultural issue focusing on education. You are required to quote and paraphrase from these articles as evidence. You are required to cite at least one of the above essays. While you can use your own knowledge and experience, this part of the essay should be more fact-based.

 

  • Propose a solution: The majority or at least half of your essay should consist of the solution because the solution should be the focus of a proposal. The solution should not be your conclusion. Here’s where your innovation and creativity can come into play. Come up with a solution to solve part of your chosen problem or all of it. If the solution is something that someone has already proposed, (in addition to giving credit to that person) you must explain why you think it would be successful and why you think it hasn’t worked yet. What needs to happen to give it that extra push toward success? You’re also welcome to think of something new and completely unheard of. It can be outlandish so long as you offer evidence about how it would be implemented and offer logic reasons. Have fun with it!
