Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
What differentiates a problem from a situation, or from a statement of fact or opinion? Why is the problem statement one of the most important elements in writing a successful doctoral dissertation? In your initial post (due on Day 3) answer these two questions, and then provide a publish of your general problem statement and your specific problem statement. Describe how these problem statements relate to your research topic in a short paragraph or two. Respond to at least two of your classmates by comparing your answers to the above questions. Use the insights you have gained in writing your own problem statements to help provide constructive feedback to peers on their problem statements. To receive full credit for the discussion, you must post your own assignment and respond to at least two classmates.
