This is a large project that covers many important skills that programs across the country continually value as integral for the education of future technical and professional communicators. First, this assignment requires that students write in the genre of a report and provides two choices: a feasibility report or a proposal/recommendation report. Additionally, this project is designed to be a collaborative assignment, one where students must figure out the best division of labor and teamwork strategies to help them complete their task. Finally, this project also contains a public speaking component by asking that student teams present their findings in a visually engaging demonstration. In these ways, the Collaborative Report Project serves as a cumulative assessment of the many learning objectives set forth at the beginning of the term.
