Assignment - Memo Request to Pursue Research
Initial Assignment Memo Draft
Your writing Assignment in this unit is a memo addressed to your professor requesting permission to move forward with your researched proposal topic idea. Use this Discussion forum to practice presenting your idea by writing a paragraph of 200-300 words persuading your decision-maker (your professor) that your idea is a good one, and justify your request with research. Cite at least two sources (remember your APA in-text citation and accompanying references from Unit 2 Discussion) you will be incorporating into your researched proposal to show your audience (your professor) research is available to support your topic.
Typically before a writer would expend energy on a researched proposal, he or she would ask for permission from a decision-maker to start their project. You practiced writing a short persuasive memo in Units 1, 2, and Unit 3 Discussion. Now use what you learned in terms of persuasive writing in this Assignment. You will write a memo to your professor requesting permission to move forward with your topic for the researched proposal, and provide evidence to support the viability of your topic.
