• 400-word minimum (not including works cited)
  • Sources: A minimum of 5 credible sources is required. A collection of credible resources has been made available to you (linked in this assignment, and located in the “Course Reserves” section of Canvas). Those resources, your little textbook (Globalization: A Very Short Introduction), and the introductory readings for this class may all be used as sources for your Expert Report.
    • You may find that your work requires additional research or support, in which case you must ensure that you use only credible, up-to-date sources. Sources that are found to be outdated or not credible will not be counted as one of your 5 minimum sources.
  • Analysis: Citing all your sources, present relevant political considerations for Denmark and the United States, including the elements listed above in the “overview” section. Discuss how cultural attitudes and political aspects may affect business decision making. Make a preliminary plant location recommendation based on these specific considerations. Guide us through the logic that leads to your conclusion/recommendation for a plant location.
    • You will organize your work as a sentence outline (s).
    • You must follow the format of the “Sentence Outline Skeleton” provided for you.
    • You must include clear “Introduction,” “Body,” and “Conclusion” headings.
    • You must include in-text citations for all sources used (yes, even in a sentence outline).
    • Citations must be formatted correctly according to the style decided on by your team (APA, or MLA). 
  • Introduction: Your Expert Report Sentence Outline must include an introduction that offers context, makes an argument (the thesis statement), and offers a preview of what you are going to talk about.  You will include a brief statement about your recommendation in the introduction as part of/following your thesis statement. 
    • The introduction must include a thesis of your main idea, which ultimately informs your recommendation. Your thesis should be a one- to two-sentence statement about the main political and cultural considerations in each country that would affect a plant location.
    • The rest of your presentation should work to support your thesis statement in some way.
  • Topic Sentences: Each section of your sentence outline must include a topic sentence. Every topic sentence should support your thesis in some way, and every topic sentence must act as a  thesis for that section. This will help you build cohesion and “flow” throughout your work. Every piece of evidence or information you offer in each section should then work to support the topic sentence of that section.
  • Conclusion: Your sentence outline must include a conclusion. The conclusion will sum things up for your listeners, clearly restate your thesis and recommendation, and offer a brief review of the justifications you expounded on in the body of your presentation.
    • The conclusion should include a recommendation that offers clear reasoning and justification, as previously specified.
    • You should acknowledge that your recommendation is based on only two factors, and note how your recommendation may change once you take the additional factors into account.
  • Works cited: Citations must be formatted correctly according to the style decided on by your team (APA, or MLA).
