week 5 writing A+ Writers | apluswriters.net

The purpose of the proposal is to present a solution to the problem you identified early in our course. Building off of our previous assignments, especially the feasibility report, the proposal offers a solution to an identified problem, and attempts to persuade readers to accept a particular course of action.

Graphics for Your Proposal

Take a look at the proposal assignment that is due in Week 6 (This is what posted at the top).

This week you will be creating two graphics that will go into your report to add clarity.

Here are the guidelines for your graphics:

You must create them yourself.

They must clarify a concept in your proposal. Provide a short description with each on how it relates to information in your proposal.

Strive to make them clear and appealing.

They can make use of information you have found in a source, but the graphics themselves must be your creation. (For example, if you wish to show the rise in workplace accidents, you might get the numbers from a government website, but you must create the graphic that demonstrates how the numbers show an increase.)

Submit the graphics as either a Word document or a PowerPoint slide.

Part 2:

Wk5 TOPIC: Reflect on the role of visual design in technical writing. Why is it important that we format reports in specific ways? What role does a visual aid play in a report? Share three things you learned about design this week
