There are numerous health problems in shanty towns. Firstly, because the sites are illegal the government does not provide piped water. As a result, drinking and bathing water are usually dirty and this causes diseases such as dysentery, typhoid and hepatitis, as well as skin and eye diseases. Secondly, houses are often overcrowded and have poor air circulation. This makes it easier to catch diseases like flu, TB and diphtheria where infection enters through the throat. Thirdly, there are no drains, sewers or rubbish collection services. The resulting pools of stagnant water and heaps of household waste attract rats and insects, which can pass on diseases.
The government could do a lot to solve these problems. For example, they could supply clean, piped water to individual houses or, at least, to neighborhoods. This would make drinking water safe and reduce infections. In addition, the authorities could provide householders with building materials to improve their conditions and educate them about the importance of ventilation. Lastly, the city council could construct drains and provide a rubbish collection service to reduce the risk of infections spread by rats and insects.
If the government took these steps, the result would be a safer, healthier environment. Furthermore, the improvements would also lead to increased employment opportunities in areas such as construction, plumbing and rubbish disposal. It is time for politicians to come to the aid of the people who elected them!
Task Description: As part of our school’s guidance program, our counselors are asking for your help. At the beginning of every school year, the guidance suite is filled with frightened, confused, and distraught 6th graders. While our counselor’s are wonderful and very skilled at helping students cope with middle school issues, it’s been so long since they were in 6th grade that they don’t remember what it feels like and can’t fully relate to new students as well as they’d like. You are their only hope. They need you to help them plan for the problems students will be faced with as well as how to help solve them. With your group, you are responsible for selecting a specific problem students entering middle school deal with and for developing a product our counselors can distribute to struggling students. Your products can be (but are not limited to) a brochure, a PowerPoint, or a movie that not only depict the problem itself, but also offer a variety of solutions all students can apply to their individual situations. The time for next year’s new crop of 6th graders is right around the corner, so let’s help those counselors out and keep those new middle school students sane!!!

1. Choose a problem (or set of problems) for your own essay. You may select a problem from the class brainstorm, or feel free to think of your own, but please discuss it with me first.
2. Make notes to identify the problem/s. For example, notes for the "Shanty Town" essay would start like the table to the right. You need to have several (at least 6) problems that contribute to your overall problem.
3. Make a list of possible solutions.
4. Don’t stick to just one area of solutions. Be creative and inventive. Think of as many possible solutions as you can!
