How This Assignment Informs Writing Assignment #4

This proposal memo is a preliminary step you take prior to writing your final paper, which is the research-based report (writing assignment #4). Your final paper in WRTG 394 will be a report in which you:
• define a problem in your workplace or community persuasively and accurately. • propose a solution or solutions to the problem or issue.

As part of defining the problem and proposing a solution, you must conduct primary research. You might also need to conduct some additional secondary research. In Writing Assignment #3, the proposal to conduct research, you are persuading a decision-maker or group of decisionmakers to authorize you to begin conducting this research that will end up in your final report.
The main purposes of the research proposal memo are to accomplish the following:
• Demonstrate that the problem you’ve identified for Project #4 is significant enough to warrant investigation. • Present a feasible plan or blueprint for your research. • Set forth potential benefits to the organization or community from the research that justify the use of time and resources.
