Comparison of two proposals
Just looking for a few paragraphs (one for each bullet point) to start a discussion.
Read the two attached proposals written for funding of elementary and middle school learning projects in Virginia.
As you will see, these proposals were written using a specified format (obviously written in response to Requests for Proposals).
Use the following questions to help frame the discussion:
- If you could fund only one of these two proposals (#1 or #2), which one would you fund? Why? Does one appear more "do-able?" Why?
- Look at the "problem" in each proposal. Is it clearly stated? What kind of problem is it? How well does each proposal`s information address its problem? If you were a reader responsible for determining funding, is there additional information you would like to have?
- Who do you think the readers were for these two proposals? Is the information in each proposal generally appropriate for its context?
- What main inferences can you make, even at this early stage, about proposal writing?
