A Practical Proposal Addressing a Local Problem

Category: Essay Writing

Choose ONE of the following two assignments:

(Assignments adapted from chapter 14 of the textbook.)

Option 1: A Practical Proposal Addressing a Local Problem

Write a 1,500-1,750 word practical proposal using five to seven academic resources that offers a solution to a local problem. Your proposal should have three main sections: (1) description of the problem, (2) proposed solution, and (3) justification.

Proposals are usually accompanied by a letter of transmittal—a one-page business letter that introduces the proposal to its intended audience and provides background about the writer.

Document design is important in practical proposals, which are aimed at busy people who have to make many decisions under time constraints. An effective design helps establish the writer’s ethos as a quality-oriented professional and helps make the reading of the proposal as easy as possible. Refer to Megan Johnson’s argument on pages 330–333.

Write a 1,500-1,750 word policy proposal using five to seven academic resources that is suitable for publication as a feature editorial in a college or city newspaper or in a publication associated with a particular group, such as a church newsletter or employee bulletin. The voice and style of your argument should be aimed at readers of your chosen publication. Your editorial should have the following features:
1.The identification of a problem. Persuade your audience that this is a problem that needs solving; give it presence.

2.A proposal for action that will help alleviate the problem
3.A justification of your solution; the reasons why your audience should accept your proposal and act on it.

Chapter 14 includes an outline you can follow to complete your proposal argument.
