Last Friday, I met with my professional writing professor to get some insight on how to properly set up my advocacy report. I presented her with facts and ideas that I was confident about. However, I was confused on whether or not the information was a cause or effect of the problem. During our meeting, I had my first “Ah-Ha” moment which clarified my view on my paper’s outline. I learned that the key to writing my advocacy report was to always refer back to the critical problem at hand! When I referred back to “smoke-free policies are limited in California”, I developed a better understanding on how to present the facts within my paper. There are multiple reasons that define the “why” and the “what” of my critical situation, and I believe I understood where to properly place these facts.
