A problem is 'a situation that presents an opportunity to make a difference in making things better' and problem solving is the process involved in the conversion of a 'current situation' into a 'desirable future situation'. Any thought process that thinks about ways of increasing quality of life or avoiding a decrease in the quality of life is actually being involved in the process of 'problem solving'.

The opening few lines are crucial. You must address a concern or problem, engage the reader and open a line of conversation that causes the reader to think. The title must be interesting and provides the reader with a clear idea of what you are going to say. typical attention-getters include:
Have you ever / It's well-known that... but / People often say that...

A year of teaching English to twelve-years-old children in Vietnam has provided some insight into some of the special areas of difficulty which derive from fundamental differences between their mother tongue, Vietnamese, and the language of the Anglo-Saxons.

Classrooms of students intently listening and absorbing the knowledge and wisdom put forth by a teacher or professor has been the established mode of teaching. Despite advances in technology and teaching concepts, this traditional mode has remained unchanged. The number of courses or subjects and the duration may have varied but largely the framework and the method of teaching have withstood changes that are otherwise visible in other elements. But educators have largely been incased in a kind of immunity against technological advancements until now.
However, it is evident that trends have been changing in the last decade or so and these changes, most of them brought about by technology will change end results. As technology continues to place its emphasis and impact on education, the role that education will play in the ...
