Choose one of the problem scenarios listed here as your topic for the assignment, Problem-Solving: Part 2.

  1. Write a brief paragraph with your choice and define the      problem in the scenario.
  2. Submit your topic choice to your professor for approval.

Scenario 2:

Your child comes home from school with an assignment sheet for a school project. They are very excited about the project and begin work immediately, doing research on the Internet and gathering materials. You read over the assignment sheet and notice that your child is not including all the required items in the project, and you have some ideas for how to improve the quality of the presentation. You recently read an article in a parenting magazine about the importance of a child developing responsibility for their own learning. You recall the many ways in which your parents took over your school projects. You, on the other hand, want to encourage your child’s confidence in their ability to complete a project independently. The next day, you are at the grocery store when you see a parent of a student in your child’s class. That parent has spent over $30 in supplies for the science project and is taking a day off work to put the pieces of the project together.

I chose this scenario because is its all too familiar. Although my child is grown, I remember one time when she was in the 4th grade, she had a project that she had to complete dealing with using battery’s, wire, and a light bulb. Any ways long story short, I tried my best to help her with the project. Well, needless to say, it did not go well…. The Problem with this scenario is my concern of the parent at the grocery store involvement in their child’s project. Now I am contemplating whether I should assist my child with the project or allow her to complete the project independently.
