Based on the work you have done for Unit 2, write an essay in which you explore different solutions to the problem you identified. Consider how the framing of the problem affects the possible solutions. Consider the consequences of the various solutions and consider how readers might choose among the possible solutions. Offer one solution--or combination of solutions--that you think is most likely to persuade people to act on the problem.
You will continue to take account of perspectives of the sources you work with. Why do they propose this particular solution? What's in it for them? You will use an additional five to six sources in your essay.
After considering various solutions from three different perspectives you will offer one of your own (it might be a combination of solutions included in your essay) that you think is most likely to persuade people to act on the problem. You will analyze why this solution is the best one, taking into consideration the consequences of the various solutions you discuss and how readers might respond to them. Your objective is to persuade your readers that this is an important issue and encourage them to ACT (by that I mean get involved, pay attention, help the cause if necessary).
