STEP 2: Identify the Problem
o What exactly is the problem, what causes it, and who is most affected? (You should be citing sources here, so it might be helpful to include some quotes or notes on which sources you might use to support this portion)
o Has anyone tried to do anything about it? If so, why haven’t they succeeded? (Again, you should have research to prove what has been tried and if it worked. You may want to include some quotes or notes on which sources you might use to support this portion)
o What is likely to happen in the future if the problem isn’t solved?
STEP 3: Propose Your Solution

o What exactly do you want to achieve?
o What good consequences will follow if your proposal is adopted?
o How exactly will your solution work? Can it be accomplished quickly, or will it have to be phased in over a few years? (provide a step-by-step process for implementing your solution. Use words like first, next, then, last)
o Has anything like it been tried elsewhere? If so, what happened?
o If your solution costs money or requires resources, how do you propose to pay for it or how do you propose to get those resources?
STEP 4: Consider Other Solutions
