:PART 1: RESEARCH: Below are two ways, A and B, you must complete your research for this topic.

I EXPECT THOROUGHNESS IN YOUR RESEARCH

A. GATHER FACTS:

Answer the ten questions below about your topic. Five questions are provided and FIVE you must come up with on your own.

Make sure you:

  • Answer each question below with at least five full sentences using your own words, no cutting and pasting.)
  • Come up with FIVE questions of your own to answer. These must be facts you can verify, not things you THINK are true.
  • Verify your research to us by providing sources after each answer to the questions below.
    • If you found your answers answers online,YOU MUST include links to the source(s) used for each question below each answer. (not in a grouping at the end of your document).
    • If you interview an expert for some answers, provide their full name and contact information.
    • If you interview someone who is a victim of microagression, you must have permission to include their name and contact information.
  • Number each question and include the question before each answer

HERE ARE THE FIVE REQUIRED QUESTIONS TO ANSWER (with at least 5 sentences for each answer). Remember to add FIVE more of your own asking. What else do you want to know? Use the template for this homework.

1) What is the problem. (For instance, explain what’s happening.)

2) What is the impact of the problem? (For instance, how does it hurt individuals? Society?)

3) Who is affected by this problem? (For example, where does this mostly occur? Who are the victims and who is causing this? Why?)

4) What is the history of the issue? (For example, what specific solutions have been tried in the past to address this problem?)

5) What is the data surrounding this topic ? (i.e., demographics, frequency of incidents, etc. Be specific, I want to see numbers.)

6) You ask a question (What else are you curious about?)

7) You ask a question (What else are you curious about?)

8) You ask a question (What else are you curious about?)

9) You ask a question (What else are you curious about?)

10) You ask a question (What else are you curious about?)

B. GUESSES, OR HUNCHES: Provide TEN hunches and number them.

WHAT IS A HUNCH?

  • A hunch is something you, or someone else, BELIEVES to be a fact, but there is no data on it, such as “Students hate taking the bus on campus.”This may be true, but have they done a survey? I think not. So, t’s a hunch, an opinion. What hunches do you have surrounding your topic?
  • Why do we care about hunches? A hunch can lead to a good solution. Hunches can later prove to be true, so they’re worth investigating.
  • An opinion: A view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge, such as the beliefs or views of a large number or majority of people about a particular thing. Having a belief about something does not make it a fact. What are people’s feelings, attitudes, frustrations, behaviors, hearsay, and intuitions?

PART 2: FIGURE OUT A PROBLEM TO SOLVE. Complete A and B.

Albert Einstein once said, “If I were given one hour to save the planet, I would spend 59 minutes defining the problem and one minute resolving it.”

READ the article at this link about how to frame a problem properly. There will be questions from it on a future quiz.

  • Present your problem in the form of a question like this: “How might we …”
  • Make sure you don’t build an answer, or a constraint, into your question. For example, on a completely different topic, if. you ask “How can our city build a bridge across the river?” includes a solution, building a bridge. But if you ask your question more broadly to allow for more ideas, you must determine the core of what you need, you would ask, “How can be get people and their vehicles across the river?”

To turn in:

A. Five Whys:

Use the 5 Whys technique by repeatedly asking the question “Why” five times. This will allow you to peel away the layers of symptoms which can lead to the root cause of a problem. Write down various introductory statements and choose your favorite one to ask Why about.

  • First, write your favorite introductory statement broken down this way:
    1. What’s the situation?
    2. What’s the complication?
    3. What is the key question?
  • Next, follow with the responses to your five Why? questions and answers. Each time you answer the question “Why…?”, ask why about your response?
    For example, on another topic:“Why do I eat so much?” Answer: “Because I love sweets.” “Why do you love sweets?” Answer: “Because they make me feel good.”“Why do they make you feel good? Answer: “Because my mom always gave them to me when I was feeling sad.”You will do this with your assignment topic.1) Why…?Answer:2) Why…?Answer:3) Why…?Answer:4) Why…?Answer:5) Why…?Answer:

B: State your final problem in the form of a question:

NOTE: YOU MUST BRING THIS WITH YOU TO CLASS EITHER PRINTED OUT OR DIGITALLY TO SHARE WITH YOUR GROUP

“How might we…?

———–

NOTE: YOU MAY NOT ASK A QUESTION (OR COME UP WITH A SOLUTION LATER ON) THAT INVOLVES RAISING AWARENESS.
Raising awareness is NOT a complex enough problem to solve and is not a solution in itself. It’s everyone’s first idea to have workshops or advertising campaigns. Those are too obvious, too predictable, for what we’re doing here.
