Problem Solution Essay

Throughout this unit, you have explored how design thinking can help people solve problems. You conducted research about a subject of your choosing and planned your own problem-solution essay to convey the results of your research.

In this four-day assessment, you will now draft the full essay.

·      clearly states a focus and stays focused throughout the piece;
·      uses accurate and relevant examples, details, and quotations to explain your thinking;
·      groups information logically, in a way that makes your thinking clear to the reader;
·      maintains a formal style and objective tone;
·      follows rules of writing (spelling, punctuation, and grammar); and
·      uses precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to explain about the topic.
Use your writing planner to help guide your writing. Manage your time carefully so that you can do the following:
1.     Draft your introduction.
2.     Draft your problem paragraph.
3.     Draft your solution paragraph.
4.     Draft your conclusion.
5.     Use the Informative-Explanatory Writing Checklist to revise and edit your draft.
