1. To understand and distinguish between challenges and problems.
2. To formulate a relationship between challenges and problems.
3. To use a rubric to evaluate problem to decide if it is a good problem statement.
Note that the Problem Statements are actually framed as 'Questions' to allow us to explore opportunities and possibilities.
Frame your Problem Statement as:
In what ways might we (IWWMW)...,
How might we (HMW)...
How can we (HCW)...
3 Elements of a good problem statement:
1) Invitational Stem. Problem statement begins with IWWMW, HMW, HCW
2) Ownership. in which case we know ‘we’ is used implying the students addressing the problem
3) Verb & Objective eg IWWMW package (verb) the book (OBJECT) more appealingly so that people will buy more? (END RESULT)
