Your rough draft will consist of the bulk of your proposal’s content, and should include your proposal broken into four sections:
- Purpose: Indicate the purpose and scope of your problem – tell us what you will be solving and why you believe it is an important issue.
- Problem: Share what the actual problem is and any history that you have regarding it or additional problems that will branch from this initial problem.
- Solution: Provide what your solution(s) to the problems are, and outline the steps that you think are needed to get to the solution.
- Conclusion: Wrap it all up and provide a conclusion to the reader. Be sure to engage your reader by applying effective organization, appropriate tone, and clear usage.
Also provide a reference page with a minimum of four references properly formatted in APA style. At least two of your references should be scholarly sources. At this stage, the draft should be between 3-to-5 pages plus the reference page.
