    • HOW MUCH RESEARCH YOU ASK? 5 SOURCES.
  1. What ideology and values are associated with the problem
  • what are the values in the way we define the problem? (this you many find but understanding all the different views of the problem; understanding both sides of the argument)
    • For example: do we focus on individual causes vs structural, do we use values like meritocracy to say if you only worked harder you could achieve etc….
  1. Examine the gainers/winners and losers (you have to be able to see the problem from both sides, multiple values perspectives)
