A first step towards completing the Touchstone Project is to choose a topic and then form research questions. You will be developing a solution to a problem that exists in your program or field of study. For instance, if you are studying Information Technology, you might discuss a specific problem in that field (such as ethics in the field of Information Technology). In a discussion board entry of no less than four paragraphs and at least 200 words, address the following:
1. Briefly describe the problem you have chosen from your field. In your description cover the following questions: What is the problem? Who does the problem affect? How long has the problem existed? What are the consequences / effects of the problem?
2. Identify the intended audience of your Touchstone Project. What does this audience know about the problem? What questions or concerns does your audience have regarding the problem? Why is your problem important to your audience? Describe your research plan. What research strategies and tools will you use to learn more about your problem? How will you evaluate your sources? What question do you hope your research will help you answer?
3. Briefly identify your working solution to the problem. How might your working solution solve the problem? Be sure to note, here, that your working solution will evolve through continued research and analysis.

Task Name: Phase 1 Discussion Board

Details: The first step towards completing the Touchstone Project is to choose a current controversy or issue and then form research questions. You will be arguing one side or another for a current issue in the news. For example, you might take up the cause of Global Warming and articulate a clear argument for or against possible impacts on this world. You might choose to address an issue taken from your local headlines, such as a local zoning initiative or closing of a school that affects your children and others. Read your local newspapers and watch news on television while choosing an issue. Once you have chosen an issue, you must now submit it to your instructor for approval and advice. Therefore, in a discussion board entry of no less than four paragraphs and at least 200 words, address the following:
1. Briefly describe the controversy/issue you have chosen from current headlines. In your description cover the following questions: What is the issue? Who does the issue affect? How long has the situation existed? What are the consequences / effects of the issue?
2. Identify the intended audience of your Touchstone Project. What does this audience know about the issue? What questions or concerns does your audience have regarding the situation? Why is your chosen issue important to your audience?
3. Describe your research plan. What research strategies and tools will you use to learn more about your issue? How will you evaluate your sources? What question do you hope your research will help you answer?
4. Briefly identify your position on the issue, for or against. Why is your approach the right one for others to take and embrace? Be sure to note, here, that working arguments will evolve through continued research and analysis.
