Writing in Your Journal
Using your journal, identify your learning and information processing styles in three different contexts: at work, in courses, and with your family or friends. Now, consider the styles of your manager, who will read your workplace proposal. You may want to actually meet with your manager to ask him or her what preferences he or she has for processing information. Be thinking about your workplace proposal, which you will revise later in this module, and how text and visuals can best be used to persuade your manager.

In your journal entry, please cite and reference the ideas of any materials you read that you used to support your responses. Document any sources included according to APA Style. (Links to an external site.)Follow APA guidelines for formatting. (Links to an external site.)
