Recommendation Report

The Recommendation Report project student facing instructions and supplemental exercises included here are aimed at helping students work through an actionable solution to a real-world problem. First, students identify a local, real-world issue. Once identified, they undergo a process of in-depth collaborative research and writing that culminates in a detailed written report and oral presentation suggesting one realistic, feasible solution to the problem they chose.

Some general pedagogical goals of the project are:

  • Analyzing audience and purpose
  • Composing for a specific audience and purpose with a tailored writing style
  • Creating and integrating visuals
  • Engagement in significant research
  • Participation in collaborative work

The scope and dynamics of this project are highly adaptable across TPC courses and curricula—engineering, business, health sciences, urban planning, sustainability, etc.
