Your Assignment

You will write a 1500-2500 word problem/solution research paper on any current social or environmental issue (local, national, global) that concerns you. In your paper, you will describe the scope of the problem, explain its cause and the consequences of it, and explain some solutions to the problem.

Topic: The topic should be something that interests or concerns you, something you can draw on a range of sources for, and something you can develop an argument around, not just simply present other people’s ideas.

Sources: You will use a minimum of five sources, three of which must come from SBCC Luria Library databases. Other source options include: any essay from your textbook; videos; interviews; and one website.
