You will identify a problem or issue to examine and recommend a course of action to address the problem.

Legitimate Internet sources are your friends. Feel free to conduct surveys or interview employers/students for information. You must use APA formatting for citations. Logical Arguments : Use your textbook as a guide for creating logical arguments. You may use either the 2+2=4 or the Yardstick approach. Avoid faulty logic and logical fallacies (circular reasoning, ad homonym, non-sequiturs, etc.). Additionally, avoid using emotional appeals (ex: “If you do this assignment well, somewhere a puppy in need gets adopted”).
