Include a written description (100 words) for each question that includes why that question is critically important.

- Lastly, provide at least three proposed reference sources, at least two of which must be from the UMUC library database (or an equivalent academic database), which you plan to use to address (i.e., research) the three questions. These proposed reference sources must have clickable and persistent URLs.
