Getting started

As you get started on this assignment, think about the following questions.

1. What interests me about this issue? 

2. Who has a stake in this issue? Whose perspectives do I need to consider?

As you're searching, refer back to these questions. If you are leaving out important facts or voices, your proposal will be less convincing.
