Exploring solutions. FOLLOW THIS!!!!!

Now that you have defined your problem, you must shed light on the solutions being discussed.

  • Think of the conclusion of your “Defining a problem” paper as a place to begin an exploration of solutions.Use other information from Essay 2 in the introduction of Essay 3 as needed to introduce the problem.Your Essay 3 introduction might be two paragraphs.
  • Your thesis should be a question about the solution? “What solution will work best?” “What solution is a good one to try first?”etc.
  • Explore the solutions to this problem with 5/8 sources (two must be scholarly).This exploration should be about 1500 words.
  • You need to cover at least 4-6 solutions.
  • After you introduce each solution, comment on its effectiveness.Consider these questions:
  • Think carefully about what order to put the solutions in?Similar solutions should be next to one another, for example.
  • Has the solution been tested?
  • Are there obstacles to the solution?
  • Will the solution cause other problems?
  • Is the solution affordable?
  • Is the solution doable?
  • Is the solution on-track?

Requirements:

  • 1500-word essay
  • Works Cited page with 5-8 sources
  • Two scholarly articles
  • Solutions should be in a conversation, in that each solution should be talked about in light of all solutions.Use the “Ways to Respond” method to give your educated opinion of each solution.Your “I Say” should start and finish each paragraph.Don’t feel you must make each solution a separate paragraph.Many solutions may be similar.Also, you may include solutions that don’t specifically address your particular problem but that might work as a solution.
  • In the conclusion, about 10 sentences, suggest a solution. This solution might be a particular one, a combination of many, a particular one that you have tweaked, or it even might be a brand-new solution that you figured out.The solution might even be that your problem can’t be solved until X is done. The conclusion should only explain briefly why the solution is the best. That is the next essay. Use this language:“The evidence suggests that ____________________ might be the best solution.The solution will _________________the problem of _________________________.

Essay 3: 1) Introduction (1-2 paragraphs): introduce the problem. Do not use F451 in this essay. You may use some of Essay 2 to explain the problem. You may use outside sources to explain the problem. 2)Each body paragraph should introduce a solution, using one or more articles. This/these summaries take up half or more than half of each body paragraph. You know how to introduce a source using MLA format. At the end of the body paragraph, give your opinion of the solution (10 sentences). Use a signal phrase to indicate the transition from the summary to your words. Can you use the Annotated Works Cited entries in Essay 3? Part of them should work; delete any information unnecessary for your Essay 3, like information that does not deal with solutions. 3)You need to organize your solutions strategically and you need to use transitions to move from one solution to the next. 4)The conclusion of about 10 sentences, should give your opinion of the best next step/solution. This solution might be one of the articles or it might be a combination. It might even be a new solution you have come up with. After each summary, respond in your own words with about 10 sentences. Start with on of these signal phrases. • I believe… • I feel… • In my opinion… and • I would say… • I think… • I really think… • I strongly believe… • I truly feel… or • In my honest opinion… • From my point of view… • From my perspective… • In my view… or • It seems to me that… Signal Words and Phrases for a Research Solution Paper • in comparison • by contrast • similarly • but • on the other hand • on the contrary • yet • however • despite • similarly • as opposed to Hassan 1 Mohammad Hassan Kristin Rozzell Murray Engl102 February 25 2020 Anti-Intellectualism Fahrenheit 451 is set centuries from now in an antiintellectual world where firefighters serve the different role of setting fires, which in this case to books that people have been illegally hoarding and reading. "Picture it—nineteenth-century man with his horses, dogs, carts, slow motion. Then, in the Twentieth Century, speed up your camera. Books cut shorter. Condensations. Digests. Tabloids. Everything boils down to the gag, the snap ending. Classics cut to fit fifteen-minute radio shows, then cut again to fill a twominute book column, winding up at last as a ten- or twelve-line dictionary resume. I exaggerate, of course. The dictionaries were for reference. But many were those whose sole knowledge of Hamlet… was a one-page digest in a book that claimed: 'now at least you can read all the classics; keep up with your neighbours.' Do you see? Out of the nursery into the college and back to the nursery; there's your intellectual pattern for the past five centuries or more."Captain Beatty explains the working of the current world to Montag through his twisted knowledge that may seem philosophical. Still, it is the unbalanced and severely wrong way of thinking movies and television is evolving into brainwashing machines. What more could this indicate if not the anti-intellectualism problem which is a distrust Hassan 2 of the informed reporters. In a way, it is similar to a conspiracy theory. Antiintellectualism movement is a distrust of the informed reporters whom the populace believed give exaggerated reports or sometimes down-size them while straight-up lie about important issues. Lecklider in The Real Victims of Anti-Intellectualism asserts the chief impact of anti-intellectualism is on those "whose boots in the streets bring about radical social change". Well, the above statement can be summarized as that the real victims of anti-intellectualism are the people who rely on fake news and start trusting and following that "fake" news. The news media outlet can slow down or hinder the growth of society because it is the filtering of information that does it. Anti-Intellectualism emerged in the United States in the early decades of the 20th century (Lecklider). In that era the children who enjoy libraries, reading, museums, and those who primarily like to read for pleasure who tend to be mocked, shunned, neglected, or bullied by several other students and some teachers who favour the superficialities. How can they live in a society where your intellect would be treated in a way that oneself turn into a fool? If not resolved, anti-intellectualism will result in a society that is likely to become an ignorant society over time. Fahrenheit 451 shows near future where books will be prohibited to the nation. It goes further to show how the populace will be subjected to a low level of knowledge as a result of the lack of factual Hassan 3 basis that is mainly derived from books. Deteriorating human experience will likely result in sprouting of violence. The irony will yet be a key element as special interest groups will likely oppose the introduction of storybooks and novels. Additionally, as mentioned by Burkeman in Think reality TV is mindless entertainment? What about the news? High-minded individuals have often sneered at masses, frittering their days away on "mindless entertainment" (Burkeman). Such a misdemeanour will likely cause more splits, especially since ordinarily people think such activities like watching TV adds happiness to their lives. The whole society will benefit from solving the issue. Reading broadens one's scope of perception and knowledge of his or her surroundings, and this is the hope for the community. Ray Bradbury's aim in authoring Fahrenheit 451 was an eye-opener to society upon the disastrous effects that a lack of a reading culture can cause. Building on this, society as a whole, including the informed reporters, the working class, researchers, politicians, and even young children will benefit from resolving the problem. Lecklider asserts that contemporary American culture, antiintellectualism represents a form of populism that is at best dangerous, at worst an indicator of Western civilization in its final death throes. Either way, it is not a good look as it also affects me. I believe that I am indirectly changed since Hassan 4 living in a society that distrust informed reporters and whose impact is criminal activities and violence is not ideal. Anti-intellectualism creates an environment that embraces less knowledge. As a student, the American education system is becoming less useful in knowledge acquisition. Students are only focused on only passing exams and moving on to the next education level rather than gaining knowledge or learning for the improvement of society (Bradbury). While Lecklider quoted "Dean Aldemaro Romero Jr., also of CUNY, strikes a similarly portentous tone: "It is time for those of us involved in higher education in this country to recognize that there is a long shadow being cast on our institutions." The internet is also becoming less and less reliable as my source of research as a majority of the information posted on the internet is not factually proven (Bajrektarevic). This problem inhibits my personal development as well as my contribution to national development as a result of limited knowledge. Naturally, the public always has an adverse reaction to anything. Be it publicity, be it a success, be it intellect. News reporters nowadays talk more about things that bring more viewers than things that are important for community well-being. Do not mark me wrong I know that most of the media people are well-intentioned but the few of those that only think of themselves and only want more "clout" (slang for attention/popularity) is the reason we suffer Hassan 5 because of anti-intellectualism. What I am saying is that it is a product of their work. One can never avoid critics. It bridges the society and even fosters crime and violence. Hassan 6 Works Cited Bajrektarevic, Anis H.

Solutions to Anti-Intellectualism
Introduction
“Everywhere we remain unfree and chained to technology, whether we passionately affirm
it or deny it. But we are delivered over to it in the worst possible way when we regard it as something
neutral; for this conception of it, to which today we particularly like to do homage, makes us utterly
blind to the essence of technology”. Within the context of this quote by Martin Heidegger from
Steven Hodge’s book Martin Heidegger: Challenge to Education (2015), never have so many
people had so much access to so much knowledge and yet have been so resistant to learning
anything. America is killing itself through its exaltation and embrace of ignorance, and the
evidence is all around us (Hodge). The latest horrific example is that of Dylann Roof, the
Charleston shooter who used race as a basis of mass murder and hate (Corasaniti). Thanks to the
Internet, a majority of the people believe that they have adequate information to make decisions
on their own, which is ideally not a definition of an ideal society. Perhaps, we could fight this antiintellectualism by raising awareness, confronting its primary sources, practicing personal change
and reflection, podcasting, and redefining what it means to be smart.
Discussion
In his text, Fighting Back the Right: Reclaiming America from the Attack on Reason, Niose
calls for activists and intellectuals to raise awareness among ordinary people on the existence of

the anti-intellectualism problem and its political and cultural consequences. If it seems to the
average citizens that the system is rigged, serving large institutional interests rather than human
needs, they need to realize that anti-intellectualism is a primary reason why. With awareness raised
as such, the public will more often be on guard against anti-intellectualism and thus less vulnerable
to it (Niose). Perhaps, this is the first step in getting people to know why the topic of antiintellectualism matters and why it should be mitigated. Various activists have tested this solution,
with Featherstone, Henwood, and Parenti’s article Action Will Be Taken” Left Anti-Intellectual...
