Write an essay in which you argue that a problem exists and/or is more serious or is different than readers might now, and/or discuss the causes of a problem, and/or discuss the consequences of the problem if unresolved – and then discuss solutions to the problem. Incorporate as much (or little) of the Claim of Cause essay as will help you build the problem and cause sections of the paper. Present one solution or several. Argue that the solutions are feasible (realistic) and how they will rectify the problem(s). You can further develop this section of the paper by comparing solutions and showing why some are better than others. Your thesis should be a clearly focused claim of policy thesis. Throughout the paper, support your claim with your own reasons (minor claims) backed with evidence (research). Use ethos and pathos to appeal to the needs and values of your readers. You can discuss the problems and/or causes in the first half of the paper and then move on to solutions, or you can alternate, discussing a dimension or cause of the problem, following it with a targeted solution, and then moving on to the next problem or cause and its solution. Address counterarguments: anticipate and argue potential objections.
