Write a 1000 to 1250 word informal(no cover page, table of contents, or appendices) analytical report(recommendation or yardstick), supported by reliable evidence (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters from academic book publishers, government or institutional websites, reputable newspapers or magazines, etc.) from at least four resources, with reasonable conclusions and recommendations.
Reports are written to help analyze and resolve real-world problems; they are solutions documents. Using letter or memo format, address your report to the appropriate audience, i.e., someone who can make change. Analyze your audience to decide whether a direct or indirect approach is most appropriate. As always, the language should be appropriate for your audience, with consideration to tone, clarity, and readability.
