PROBLEM SOLVING DISCUSSION
You use your problem solving skill every day, even when you don’t realize it. For example, maybe you need to be at work for an important meeting, but your child is sick. How do you make arrangements so you can get to your meeting?
Or imagine you’re trying to make pancakes on Sunday morning, and you have one egg when the recipe calls for two. How do you finish your mix?
Or maybe your rent is due tomorrow, but you’re short $150. What do you do?
In paragraph 1, share a problem you’ve recently encountered in your own life and outline the steps you took to solve it. What were the possible solutions? (For example, if you knew you were going to be short on rent, would you borrow the money or ask your landlord for an extension, and why?)
In paragraph 2, explain how you determined the best course of action for your situation. In the end, how did you ultimately solve the problem?
Remember to answer each part of the question in 2 paragraphs. Each paragraph should be 5-7 sentences with limited grammatical errors (total 10-14 sentences).
