My topic is: A teenager asks for permission to extend weekend curfew hours.
Here are the instructions to complete your problem-solving group project:
- Create a group of 3 to 5 people. You can create a group using classmates from this class, but it is not a requirement that your group be part of this class. Post in the Group Project forum in the discussion board to find group members from this class. If you choose to form your group outside of the classroom, the group members need to be over the age of 18 and available to meet at the same time. This can be a group of friends, work associates, or a study group. This can be a group you create or a group in which you are already a part. It can be a virtual group or a face-to-face group. If you are currently part of a problem-solving group, you may use that group experience for the reaction essay.
- Before you meet with your group, you will choose a problem for the group to solve. Choose a topic from the provided list or decide on your own problem to solve. Send me a message for topic approval no later than the end of Lesson 4.
- Meet as a group to brainstorm the problem and a solution. You will need to take good notes during your meeting, so make sure to have note taking materials. Remember, this should be a synchronous group meeting. It should last at least 1 hour.
- Your group will brainstorm your problem and solution following this format below. Write down each step in as much detail as you can as you will be turning in this step for points toward your total project grade.
Group Project Brainstorming Report
When meeting in your problem-solving group, you will be discussing in detail the problem. After clearly identifying, defining, and clarifying the problem, your group will create one solution that helps to solve the problem you described. There will probably not be a solution that is a 100% fix, and that’s okay. Your group can talk about the strengths and the weaknesses of the solution to meeting the problem. Remember, take good notes while meeting with your group. All of the steps in the organizational format below should be explained in great detail, not just notes.
Organizational Format for Brainstorming Session
- Identify – clearly state the problem you are trying to solve.
- Define – thoroughly describe the problem. Why does the problem exist? What are the cause and effects? Are there drawbacks to solving this problem?
- Clarify – who is impacted by the problem? How are they impacted?
- Solve – offer one solution to satisfy the problem. Include strengths and weaknesses of this solution as it relates to the problem you described.
If you work with others in your class on this project, you need to turn in your own original brainstorming report. You may not write up a single report and turn it in for all group members.
The Group project brainstorming report is a separate report. However the steps listed in the Organizational Format for the Brainstorming Session is what needs to be identified in the Problem Solving report. Again just want to remind you my group topic is :A teenager asks for permission to extend weekend curfew hours.
