  • Identify the global societal problem within the introductory paragraph.
  • Describe background information on how that problem developed or came into existence.
    • Show why this is a societal problem.
    • Provide perspectives from multiple disciplines or populations so  that you fully represent what different parts of society have to say  about this issue.
  • Construct an argument supporting your proposed solutions,  considering multiple disciplines or populations so that your solution  shows that multiple parts of society will benefit from this solution.
    • Provide evidence from multiple scholarly sources as evidence that your proposed solution is viable.
  • Interpret statistical data from at least three, peer-reviewed scholarly sources within your argument.
    • Discuss the validity, reliability, and any biases.
    • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of these sources, pointing out  limitations of current research and attempting to indicate areas for  future research. (You may even use visual representations such as graphs  or charts to explain statistics from sources.)
  • Evaluate the ethical outcomes that result from your solution.
    • Provide at least one positive ethical outcome as well as at least  one negative ethical outcome that could result from your solution.
    • Explain at least two ethical issues related to each of those outcomes. (It is important to consider all of society.)
  • Develop a conclusion for the last paragraphs of the essay, starting  with rephrasing your thesis statement and then presenting the major  points of the topic and how they support your argument. (For guidance on  how to write a good conclusion paragraph, please review the Introductions & Conclusions (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. from the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..)

The Global Societal Problem, Argument, and Solution

Good Critical Thinking Tips:

  • Your paper should include academic sources that explain multiple sides of the issue.
  • Your interpretations of the evidence should be objective and state  the conclusions and theses presented in the evidence clearly and fairly.
  • Your paper should place the various forms of evidence in relation to  one another and demonstrate why one form or perspective is stronger  than the other positions that one could take on the issue.
  • Your paper should point out the limitations of current evidence and attempt to indicate areas for future research.
