Global Societal Problem, Argument and Solution

[WLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

Prepare: Prior to beginning work on this assignment, please review this Sample Final Paper GEN499 for additional guidance on the expectations of this assignment.

The topic of your essay needs to be a global societal problem from the following list:

● Climate change ● Pollution ● Religious conflict and violence ● Rise of artificial intelligence ● Lack of education ● Unemployment and lack of economic opportunity ● Government accountability and corruption ● Food and water security ● International drug trafficking ● Poverty and income inequality

Reflect: Based on the topic that you have chosen, you will need to use critical thinking skills to thoroughly understand how this topic can be a global societal problem and determine some logical solutions to the problem.

Write: This Final Paper, an argumentative essay, will present research relating the critical thinker to the modern, globalized world. In this assignment, you need to address the items below in separate sections with new headings for each.

In your paper,

Identify the global societal problem within the introductory paragraph.

● Conclude with a thesis statement that states your proposed solutions to the problem. (For guidance on how to construct a good introduction paragraph, please review the Introductions & Conclusions from the University of Arizona Global Campus Writing Center

Describe background information on how that problem developed or came into existence. ● Show why this is a societal problem. ● Provide perspectives from multiple disciplines or populations so that you fully

represent what different parts of society have to say about this issue. Construct an argument supporting your proposed solutions, considering multiple disciplines or populations so that your solution shows that multiple parts of society will benefit from this solution.

● Provide evidence from multiple scholarly sources as evidence that your proposed solution is viable.

Interpret statistical data from at least three peer-reviewed scholarly sources within your argument.

● Discuss the validity, reliability, and any biases. ● Identify the strengths and weaknesses of these sources, pointing out limitations of

current research and attempting to indicate areas for future research. (You may even use visual representations such as graphs or charts to explain statistics from sources.)

Evaluate the ethical outcomes that result from your solution.

● Provide at least one positive ethical outcome as well as at least one negative ethical outcome that could result from your solution.

● Explain at least two ethical issues related to each of those outcomes. (It is important to consider all of society.)

Develop a conclusion for the last paragraphs of the essay, starting with rephrasing your thesis statement and then presenting the major points of the topic and how they support your argument. (For guidance on how to write a good conclusion paragraph, please review the Introductions & Conclusions from the University of Arizona Global Campus Writing Center

Good Critical Thinking Tips:

● Your paper should include academic sources that explain multiple sides of the issue. ● Your interpretations of the evidence should be objective and state the conclusions and

theses presented in the evidence clearly and fairly. ● Your paper should place the various forms of evidence in relation to one another and

demonstrate why one form or perspective is stronger than the other positions that one could take on the issue.

● Your paper should point out the limitations of current evidence and attempt to indicate areas for future research.
