–    The structure of the report (what sections or parts will be included in the report)

–     The purpose of each of the different parts of the report

–      Four research sources you will use to research information for the report, why they are

relevant to the topic, and why they are credible.

Please use the following outline to help structure your Report Outline: Introduction                              Background of the issue
