Informational Memo Report to Dr. Ahni Dodge, Dodge Data Services (Midterm)–Ch 9
Create a 2-page professional-looking informational report (stapled; no report covers) on a topic that provides information to Dodge Data Services. Begin with a short outline of what you want to address, which is similar to a five-paragraph essay, and should include an Introduction, Body, and Conclusion.
Write down the three main points of your argument or proposal, to be used for the body of the report. The outline can just be a quick rundown of ideas that you will address in your report. Use a Memo heading with TO, FROM, DATE, SUBJECT.
After the heading, begin the Introduction’s first paragraph, which should be three to five sentences. Answer the who, what, when, where, why, and how questions to appropriately address what will be discussed in the body of your report.
Write the Body section of your report by using the main points you wrote in your outline. Construct a paragraph for each point of three to five sentences. Make sure these points sufficiently back up the statements you made in your introduction concerning the issues you are addressing in your report.
Write the Conclusion, which should reiterate the issues mentioned in your introduction and summarize the main points you addressed in the body of your report. The final sentence of your conclusion should resonate with the reader and show the urgency and necessity of the issues you address in your report.
