Throughout this semester, you have focused on a particular problem or issue in your career field through your own research. You have created an annotated bibliography and a rhetorical analysis.

Now, you will write an essay discussing the problem and the solution. Ideally, you can use your proposal outline to write this paper. This paper requires all the sections listed on the proposal outline you have already submitted.

As mentioned in the outline instructions, you won’t be discussing ethos, pathos, or logos, but you should be thinking about how you will use them as a writer to persuade your audience. Be sure to provide sufficient evidence to support your claims. Also, consider the language that you use to persuade your audience. You cannot use first person in this paper, so you cannot speak to your own credibility, but you can enhance your credibility by creating good logos and providing other credible sources. Remember that choosing certain words and evidence may alter ethos, accentuate pathos, and bolster logos.

Remember to offer specific steps for achieving the proposed solution. In other words, you will use process writing in the “steps of the solution” section to explain how the solution can or should be achieved. This will require that you use process transition words like “First” and “Next” and “Finally.” Remember that your intended audience has the power to implement your solution or disregard it. The more specific you are with steps AND the feasibility, the better your chances that your audience will accept your proposal.
