Questions & Answers

  • What is the best introduction to a problem solution essay?

    A story that makes the problem seem essential and dramatic is the best way to start a problem solution essay. There are a lot of issues in the world, and if you want your reader to think yours is an important one to solve, you need to catch their attention with something they will remember. A good story is an excellent way to do that. It can be a personal story, a news item, a typical made-up scenario, a real-life story or even part of a movie plot that demonstrates the problem. Follow that up with some statistics showing the importance of the problem for a wider audience, and you will have a great start!

  • What do you think about the essay topic "What should be done about the problem of texting while driving?"

    Excellent question which makes it clear what the focus will be. You can make a good opening by sharing some statistics about accidents and how texting is similar to driving while under the influence. You can discuss solutions that are laws and also talk about how each person needs to choose to follow those solutions. It is easy to turn on an app or the setting which won't let you text while driving. I think it makes a good ending of this sort of essay to encourage the reader to use that solution for their own phone use.

  • What do you think of the topic, "how can steroid use be limited in all sports (or one in particular)?" as a problem solution essay?

    Picking one sport would make this an easier essay to argue. Remember that problem solution essays need to have a detailed explanation of the solution and also include answers to objections. Here are some sample topics:

    1. How can steroid use be eliminated from the Olympic games?

    2. How can steroid use be eliminated in high schools?

    3. How can steroids be limited in baseball?

    4. What is the solution to preventing steroid use in professional football?

      Siranush, start your paper with a story about someone who is depressed and then give statistics about depression. The thesis statement should be something like: While no one can take responsibility for solving someone else's depression, there are some things that friends and family can do to help a person who is depressed.

      Bernard, I suggest that you talk with your fellow students about problems that they have as they both work and go to school. In your paper, you would list each problem and then suggest a few solutions. For example, you might talk about finding time to do homework and then give solutions like making a schedule, studying during lunch, or finding a partner to help you keep accountable.

      Kanika--It is a good idea to turn your topic into a question and an answer. Here are some examples:

      What is the effect of divorce on young children (or teenagers or college students)? Your answer would be your thesis. Another topic idea could be:

      What is the effect of divorce on men (or women)?

      What is the effect of divorce on a person's work? See my article on how to write a cause effect paper.

      I have many articles on different subjects for you to look at. Many of the ones in this article would work fine but you can also look at my articles which are specifically for high school students. A good paper idea is one that interests you and it will be easier to write if you immediately can think of your opinion on that topic and some examples you can use from your own life, something you've read, current news or an example from literature, a movie or another video.

      Hi Trang--I have a lot of information to help you write your paper. Look for my articles about how to write argument, problem solution and proposal papers. In order to discuss two solutions, you just need to think about two possible answers to the question that have not yet been done. For example, in the question "How can students get enough good sleep each night?" two good answers that are equal would be: making a schedule for work and sleep, and using a technology device like a cell phone or fitbit that tracks sleep patterns.

      Anyway, I enjoyed reading your hub - it is helpful to those who are seeking to teach essay at the college or university level, and those who want to writer such a genre of essay. That is problem-solution essay.

      I would ask though about the tips to writing an essay quickly and accurately at the same time. How should you as an essay writer achieve both ends?

      So glad I helped you Kaiya! I know that getting the right topic and finding some good information can really help someone overcome that writer's block that makes starting an essay so hard!

      This helped a ton! Anyone of these topics could easily be well written, being that there is so much information about each topic. I seriously couldn't have thought of any of these topics, and this definitely helped my essay. There was many topics to choose from, depending on the area you are interested in. It made me think about what I really wanted to write about! Thanks so much!!! :)

      You really thought of so many valid topic that are all worthy of discussion. Anyone of this topic could easily be written about and really there are so many problems, it is a bit overwhelming, but then we must start somewhere. This is a great idea for a hub and no one should have to have writer's block anymore. Voted up and useful.
