What is a Proposal? A proposal argues for a change in response to a problem; it is forwarding-looking (focuses on the future) and is aimed toward the needs of a unique audience. Your proposal should Clearly establish that a problem exists by describing a need Make a claim that addresses the problem/need and focused on action in the future Show why your proposal will fix the problem/need Demonstrate that your proposal is feasible The Parts of Your Proposal Your proposal paper will consist of two parts: 1) 1-2 page audience analysis to identify and analyze the needs and values of the audience your proposal is directed towards a) Explains who your audience is, what you want your words to do to them, and how they may react to your writing. b) Explains how you made specific choices in writing (USING SPECIFIC EXAMPLES) to illustrate how your proposal meets the needs of this audience 2) 4-5 page proposal [modeled after “A Call to Improve Campus Accessibility for the Mobility Impaired” on page 296] a) Will outline the need for your proposal. b) Will use the headings (and, if necessary, additional subheadings) as outlined in “A Call to Improve Campus Accessibility for the Mobility Impaired” [Introduction, Assessment of Current Efforts, The Benefits of Change, Counterarguments, Recommendations] c) Will draw on at least 4 CREDIBLE, CURRENT sources for support.
