cause/effect situation that was arguable
Your last essay focused on a cause/effect situation that was arguable. This essay focuses on a solution to a problem, called a proposal, because you are proposing a solution to an issue. Let’s say your second essay was on the problem of pollution in China, and you argued about the reasons for the pollution, mentioning that lack of restrictions and government corruption were the two causes of pollution in China, something that people could debate on. Now you’ve moved to the third essay and you want to keep writing about that topic. You can now move forward to explaining how to fix those problems. What’s your solution to this? That’s what this essay is about. You can keep some of the sources from the previous essay and incorporate them into this one but you may NOT copy and paste parts of the second essay to this one. They should be completely different in wording.
If you didn’t like the topic of the second essay, you may scrap it and think of a different problem–>solution. The solution(s) is/are the main focus. See the sample outline in order to know how to organize this one. This should be less confusing than the last one but longer with more research. I know this is a lot of work in a short amount of time, but you can do this. You’re in the home stretch! If you need anything, email.
