Paper Assignment 2: Report
Words 2,000 (does not include title page, abstract, Table of Contents, or Appendix).
Task: For this paper, you will expand upon your informative paper 1 assignment adding a title page with abstract, table of contents, an introduction section, a conclusion section and an appendix which will include at least one visual component (chart, graph, etc .. ). You will also need to expand upon the topic itself and your explanations and analysis thereof; thus, you should consider using 2-3 secondary sources for each subtopic to help you expand your original thoughts. You should use at least 6 sources for this paper. You should choose a secondary audience to go along with the first one you chose for Paper 1. This will also help you to expand your subtopics because your secondary audience may need more information than the first one did. Instead of a works cited page, you will provide footnotes for all references used.
Order of Structure for Paper and Checklist for Parts:
1. Title Page with Abstract
2. Table of Contents ( lists major sections/subtopics and back matter: appendix
4. Visible, multiple sections with Sub-headings- key areas of your discussion
5. Footnotes throughout
