If possible, draw this topic from your current/intended field of study/future profession! Use the Toulmin or Rogerian approach discussed in class; include citation / quotation from at least two sources. Be sure to attach a correct Works Cited to the essay! Regardless of which strategy you choose, remember that the finished product should consist of AT LEAST FIVE PARAGRAPHS or more!

Point out how correcting this problem will enhance the _______________ (organization’s / institution’s / business’s) operation/efficiency/function/profit margin. Of course, if you describe a situation that needs to be improved, you need to suggest a solution by which it can be improved—don’t forget to do this! OR: 2) In a similar fashion, make a suggestion that you think will improve the operation of this O/I/B even though there’s not necessarily a problem!
