Carrie Gamper Writing 1122 Professor Stacks February 7, 2008 Paper #2 Pick a specific group you belong to. This could be a fraternity, sorority, sports team, religious group, club, etc. If you’re not a member of a group, pretend you are. Just pick one. The more specific your group, the better. Your group has a budget of $1,000 to build a 9/11 memorial. This memorial will be displayed on DU’s campus for all to see. But it will also represent your group. But it will also memorialize 9/11. With all this in mind, please complete the following: 1. Proposal to your group : This document should be written to members of your group to convince them to adopt your idea for the 9/11 memorial. Pretend that other members are also submitting proposals. But you want yours to be adopted. Explain your idea to them and convince them that your idea best represents the values of your group and best memorializes 9/11. 2. Proposal to DU administration : Your idea also has to be approved by DU administration since it will be displayed on campus. Write a letter to the Provost Gregg Kvistad explaining your idea and asking for final approval of your idea. Convince him that your idea will be good for the campus community at large. 3. Analysis : Write a three-page essay for me that explains three things: a. Explain your design for the memorial. Use ideas you learned in the readings from this chapter.
