I’m trying to study for my Communications course and I need some help to understand this question.
You will find you have an email assigning your topic for the Individual Report. Begin researching the topic and collecting resources that will allow you to provide an unbiased report on an important topic of concern to a board of directors interested in better understanding the controversy so they can make a public statement of position.
For the purposes of this assignment a report is informational, not persuasive. Leave the opinions to the audience. The difficulty in writing this form of professional report is in removing your own ideology from the formula as much as it is in the planning, research, execution and mechanics of writing. Professionalism in this scenario demands the reporter be separate from a final opinion on the topic enough to be informative without muddying the facts one way or another.
my topic is: Sanctuary cities.
