I want you to write a
Business Letter Assignment
One of the most common documents written outside of school is the business letter, which may be a paper document or may be sent as an email. Your assignment has three parts.
The first is to identify a specific living person who is in a position to bring about a specific change that moves toward the position for which you argued in your report. They may be business owners or executives who can affect changes in their business that will affect employees or customers, politicians who can work towards enacting legislation that will affect the lives of citizens, or members of professional groups that can support change affecting the lives of professionals and the people affected by this work. You should write a short paragraph that explains why you have selected this particular person; that paragraph will be the starting point for a discussion board.
The second part of the assignment is to do some research on this person. This research should gather information that is relevant to the topic on which you will be writing. You may want to consider the goals of the organization or institution for which the person works; any pertinent actions that the organization has recently taken in regards to that position or their current posture to that topic; any statements that the person has made in the past about this topic or about similar topics. If personal details about the individual seem relevant, you may want to include them as well, but remember that this is not simply generic research on the person’s life. You should do a short write-up of your findings with a line or two on why each seems something you can use. This, again, will be part of a discussion board this week.
The third part of the assignment is the actual business letter, which will be given the separate grade indicated on the syllabus. This letter should ask the individual you have researched to take a specific action that moves toward the position for which you argued in your report. The letter should follow the format of the samples. Successful
