Writing the Rough Draft As you begin to move beyond your initial outline and summary, your next step will be drafting. Drafting is a very important step in the writing process, but by no means should it be considered the final stage. In it you should focus on putting as much on paper as you can including your Purpose Statement (though it may eventually change), your supporting evidence, and analysis of the evidence. It is less important to worry about having all the correct words and punctuation as it is to work hard to express as much as you can about the topic. When you have completed the Rough Draft, you should be 90% done with the Final Project.
If it helps, think back to when you drafted your purpose statement in your outline. How has your work up to this point worked toward solving the issue you have identified? What have you unearthed as you have dug into your topic? Addressing similar questions to those from the earlier assignment in your introduction may help you find direction in your draft:
What is the problem? When does the problem occur? Who and/or what does it affect? What are the potential solutions for the problem? How can you present the solution(s) in a fair way to your audience, respecting their
Your rough draft will consist of the bulk of your proposal’s content, and should include your proposal broken into four sections:
Purpose: Indicate the purpose statement and scope of your problem – tell us what you will be solving and why you believe it is an important issue.
Problem: Share what the actual problem is and any history that you have regarding it or additional problems that will branch from this initial problem.
Solution: Provide what your solution(s) to the problems are, and outline the steps that you think are needed to get to the solution.
Conclusion: Wrap it all up and provide a conclusion to the reader. Be sure to engage your reader by applying effective organization, appropriate tone, and clear usage.
Also, provide a reference page with a minimum of four references properly formatted in APA style. At least two of your references should be scholarly sources. At this stage, the draft should be between 3-to-5 pages plus the reference page.

To prevent Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) in the City of Mounds View, MN. especially;
legislation to disallow or euthanize the American Pit Bull Terrier (Amstaff or Pit Bulls ).
Additionally, to take this opportunity to educate my readers about this majestic breedProblem
The Pit Bull may be the most misunderstood and demonized dog breed in America. Efforts by
groups promoting Breed-Specific Legislation, public misinformation and an “if it bleeds it leads,”
attitude in the media have resulted in the banning of this breed in several North American Cities.
If this BSL is allowed to continue, the number of cities with similar bans will continue to grow.
My fear is that a similar ban may be adopted which would affect my dog and my family.
Providing factual scholarly sources, expert opinions, and my personal experience I will educate
my readers about the breed standards and expected temperament. I will also differentiate the
Pit Bull from the other Breeds it is commonly associated with and I will discuss the duties of a
responsible owner and how this can reduce the amount of dog bites and attacks for all breeds.
Dog bites and attacks against humans or animals are a tragic event. There is a growing
number of scholars and experts that believe the owner and the environment are directly
