I have to start an essay about how to solve a social problem. What should I point out first ? An introduction to the problem (such as what is the problem and what are the consequences of it) or It is better to clearly explain what is the aim of the essay and how it will be organised ?( for example "The aim of this essay is to propose a solution to the problem of... I will focuss on two different solutions..."). Thanks for your help.

    There's no set way of doing this. The kind of opening sentence will depend on the area or discipline involved. As it stands, this question is too broad. – Tᴚoɯɐuo May 2 '17 at 17:26
  • Another term you could use is "objective". – fixer1234 May 2 '17 at 19:42
  • This would be a good question to ask your course instructor. – Adam May 3 '17 at 16:00
