This week we begin the major assignment for this course: a formal report or a proposal.
For this week’s assignment, you will write a memo addressed to your instructor in which you share your plans for your Course Project. In order to convince your instructor to approve your topic, you must explain what your topic is, why you have chosen it, and how you plan to complete it successfully. You may find it helpful to divide your memo into three paragraphs: the what, the why, and the how. The recommended length of this assignment is one page. See Appendix B, Formatting for Letters and Memos, pages 560–561 to learn more about memo format and to see a sample memo. In addition, the Assignment Connection in the Week 4 Lesson will provide more tips and advice for choosing a strong topic
