Have you ever needed just the facts?
At times a formal, objectively written approach is more appropriate or even critical for establishing credibility so that your audience will listen and get informed! The key to informative writing is making the shift from personal opinion to objective facts. This assignment will provide you with the important opportunity to practice making this shift to a style that is required in so many workplaces and throughout your academic program.
For this assignment, you will write an informative essay on the topic (Here’s my topic “Monitoring Toddlers and Technology”) you have previously chosen. You will need to identify a problem, need, or process related to your topic. Then you will inform your audience and provide supporting evidence from a minimum of two credible sources that have been provided in the webtext. Keep in mind, you will continue to use the standard essay format: Introduction paragraph with a thesis statement, body paragraphs that specifically support the points of your thesis statement and a conclusion paragraph.
Here's some sources you can use for your topic.
Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
- Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
- Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, your professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.
