Analyze and Choose

Guiding Questions
How does each possible
solution for your chosen
issue meet or fail to meet
each of your criteria?
Refer back to your chart
for 6.02 and the criteria
for conditions,
budget/labor concerns,
public support, your
parents ideas, how do
they compare to each
other, and externalities.

Your Responses

Based on your research,
which is the best solution
to turn into action?
Explain why you made this
choice over the other
possible solutions. Refer
back to the criteria and
the externalities.

Now it is time to create your presentation. You should create a presentation that
includes ALL of your research. Your introduction should come from your research in
6.01. The “meat” of your presentation will come from you findings in 6.02, 6.03,
and 6.04. Your conclusion will come from your findings in 6.05.
Your presentation can be anything including a slide show, video, website, speech,
essay with charts, skit, or blog. Just be sure that EVERYTHING is included and that
you do not simply list your research charts. They should be incorporated into your
presentation – not just copied and pasted.

Good luck.
