Q. Problem Solution Paper


Oftentimes, a problem-solution paper (also known as a design-a-problem paper) asks the writer to A) identify or design a problem and B) describe or design a creative or practical solution. These types of assignments use:

  • Research
  • Argumentation strategies
  • A strong thesis
  • Attention to Audience

There is often a creative element in crafting these papers, which makes the task much more engaging for the student.
