A proposal is different from other
short reports (incident, lab, field, or trip reports). In a proposal, you need
to define a problem and describe a solution. "Almost all projects begin
with a proposal" (Johnson-Sheehan, 2015, p. 199). Proposals are a way of
asking permission to continue forward and require authors to be compelling in
their causes. Reports, are written after events and express gains or losses. Imagine
you proposed and received funding to attend a conference, but it was dull and
unproductive. Although your learned a few new ideas, it was mostly a waste of
time and money. How would you report your perspective to your supervisor? What
details would you provide? What tone would you use?

correctly both in-text and in a final reference in the discussion or on a
slide. The student uses the source appropriately--the text of the cited
material is made with care; sources are meaningfully analyzed and presented.
