The IDEAL problem-solving process developed by Bradford and Stein (1993) is implemented by: (I) Identifying the problem, (D) Defining the problem, (E) Exploring strategies, (A) Acting on ideas, and (L) Looking for effects. Think back to the problem you discussed in DQ1 or use a new problem that you have experienced in your volunteer (internship) experience. How can you use the IDEAL problem-solving process to help you solve the issue you have encountered? Please give examples that engage each of the steps in the IDEAL model.
