  1. This is a solid sketch, Huyen. You highlight the problem well and provide an interesting and significant claim. Well done! When establishing the status quo portion of your project (#1 above), be sure to provide common ground about the issue to establish what exactly you find problematic with it. Your write that “email is outdated and students hate email.” Though, this deals more with what you’re trying to show exists rather than what needs change. The context you would need to establish deals more with the details of how much teacher/student communication relies on traditional emailing (what it’s like, frequency, etc.). Then, after this is established, you can get into the details of the problem you believe exists.

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any questions.
