In a paper, compose a background statement which indicates the reason that the problem is of important social concern or theoretical interest. This is important, because if the problem that you come up with is not of important theoretical interest or social concern, it likely is not worth researching and trying to resolve. Ask yourself why continuing to research this problem is important.
In this assignment, you need to also include why you think this is a problem and support that with rationale. You will want to state what is affected by the problem and how it is affected (beyond the population first identified in the previous assignment). Then, clearly define why this problem is important in terms of social concerns and theoretical interests specifically. Hint: Perhaps you could review theories that currently exist in research to determine which theory this research could expand upon.
This statement should be 1-3 pages with the remainder being your more detailed explanation of the problem statement with justifying documentation no more than five years old. Support your paper with a minimum of three (3) additional resources, which may include your text(s) from previous courses.
Length: 5-7 pages not including title and reference pages
Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
