In this essay you’ll first carefully analyze and explain a specific social, economic, political, civic, or environmental problem that you wish to see resolved. Show your readers that this problem really exists, that it matters to you and to them, and perhaps even why it exists. Write for an audience who, once aware of the problem, may be expected to help do something about it. Next, propose one or more ways to solve or at least alleviate the problem. Lay out the reasons why your proposal deserves to be implemented; supply evidence that your solution is reasonable and can work.
