Your Problem/Solution essay should be 4-5 pages in MLA Format and use a minimum of 3 sources.
MLA Format is double spaced
If you are using MLA Formatting and sources you MUST include a works cited page
So the actual body of the paper is 3-4 pages long, double spaced
The paper should go like this:
I. Intro— What is the issue? Why should I care?
II. Describe the specific Problem you are focusing on
III. Flesh out a detailed solution to the problem you’ve identified
IV. Evaluate your solution– Academic Style does not allow for “pie in the sky,” if everyone just did X then the problem would disappear kind of thinking. Look at your solution proposal critically, what are potential drawbacks? challenges? and/or shortcomings?
