This is the second part of a multimodal research paper. The first part, I did on writing about a climate change problem. I attached what I wrote below (CP). The second part of this is taking an advocate’s role. It has to talk about solution to the problem based on newly formed policies. I will have resources attached including a sample. Not to mention, it’s multimodal so pictures with captions, hyperlinks, and etc. are needed. It can’t sound boring with repetition. Not to mention the sources can’t just be all news. It should have government and academic sources. Will a draft be available by november 21 and can you bold the thesis?
This essay requires different kinds of research as well as some new and in-depth research on the problem’s effects and causes*. While the essay will primarily be about 1 best solution, you will also have to compare it against another solution.
Keep an open mind. Don’t pick the first solution you come across. Give yourself time to explore 5-7 different ideas and then pick the best from that.
This draft must have a strong argument (Solution Analysis Statement) that’s been revised several times and is evaluative instead of descriptive. You should have started developing your body paragraphs with different kinds of evidence, views of supporters and expert opinions. Your paper should be showing research into the solutions flaws and roadblocks—in other words you should be doing some form of SWOT analysis. I expect to see careful and effective word choice employing MERL and CCCCF terminology and vocabulary.
REMINDER: Solutions must be recent (not older than 2 years) and pending (they shouldn’t already be a law!)
Here are the steps to help you get started with researching for the different parts of this essay.
Solutions: Research several different types of solutions from both organizations as well as government sources.
Sponsors: Research credibility of the sponsors of the solutions you have chosen to discuss in your essay.
Supporters: You will need to find credible people and groups who support the BEST solution or the idea behind the solution (at least 3-4).
Opponents: You will need to find credible people and groups who oppose the BEST solution or the idea behind the solution (at least 3-4).
Analysis: You will have to next research commentators who analyze the BEST solutions’ effectiveness, or cost-benefit, or feasibility. You will find good commentary on solutions in newspaper editorial pages.
Weakness: You must be prepared to acknowledge a weakness or flaw in your BEST solution. This will show to your academic reader that you are being fair and objective and not a biased cheerleader.
Barriers/Roadblocks: What are some of the obstacles that stand in the way of your solution being passed? How strong are these? How do these affect the likely passage/adoption/implementation of your solution?
2nd Solution: While you will dedicate only 1 paragraph to the 2nd best solution in the essay, you should still be able to discuss its pros and cons expertly.
Supporters of 2nd best solution: You will need to find credible people and groups who support this solution or the idea behind the solution (at least 2).
Opponents: You will need to find credible people and groups who oppose this solution or the idea behind the solution (at least 2).
Analysis/Strength: You will have to research commentators who analyze this solutions’ effectiveness, or cost-benefit, or feasibility.
Rebuttal: In the 2nd best solution paragraph you will end with a robust rebuttal of the 2nd best policy being weaker compared to the best policy. Hence it is wise to consider in what ways the 2ndpolicy is weaker—less feasible, less, coverage, less cost-beneficial etc.?
What are some opportunities/good news that make you hopeful that your solution is likely to be adopted?
Solution Analysis: Why did solutions fail in the past? What could have made them work? How and why will this time around be different?
* Depending on the solution you may have to redefine and re-frame your problem to make solution match it perfectly. This will entail fresh research as well.
Here are more sources to find analysis, discussion of solutions from some cool news and advocacy organizations. But you also look in national and international newspapers for discussion of the ideas in your solutions.
