In this assignment, you will write a report on an important local, state, national, or international subject of your choosing. You will demonstrate your expertise and knowledge on this subject through thorough research and clear analysis and explanation. Pick a subject you are interested in. Even though your opinions will not be at the forefront, the very fact that you are “into” the topic should make the writing stronger . In a report, the writer should withhold his or her own opinions on the subject. The writer is “reporting” the information as it is, without offering strong judgments or claims. The aim is to inform readers, not necessarily to persuade or to entertain. When deciding how to organize information, writers often use many of the techniques discussed in the STRATEGIES chapters, so do take some time to look them over. The essay should be three to six pages of actual text, double-spaced, 12 pt. Times New Roman font, with at least two primary or secondary sources. Format the essay according to APA style guidelines. Topic: Tablets (Technology) A Report is NOT: A regurgitation of facts and statistics. You are not writing an encyclopedia entry. If a reader needs such basic info, there are many other places to find it. Your job is to highlight one aspect of the subject and explain it from a unique angle. About everything related to the topic. The topic must be focused as tight as possible. Do not write about the whole Holocaust; write about the escape experience of a survivor. See the difference? About subjects considered “common knowledge.” Got a new piece of evidence for 9/11? That’s a report. Simply telling us what happened on 9/11? Again, plenty of other material out there for that.
