Lesson One is due at the end of the week. The Report contains three graded activities:

  1. Overall format (do not overuse: page breaks, excess line returns, or increased margins size), readable of your assignment, and citations. Include page footers and page numbers on all assignments.
  2. A unique Business Journal Article Critique Essay.
  3. Internship update summary of internship site activities:
    • Hours (containing a statement of activities).
    • Hours worked or volunteered.
    • Submit the status of the three Internship SMART Objectives with supporting raw data. Additionally, submit a current analysis (a state where you are in completing the objective and what you have learned so far) of collected raw data. If the objective is complete, state so.
    • To assist…review the SMART Objective Update Requirements Item found in the Lesson Tools.

The report includes the following components in this order (use a bold section header for each critical report element):

TRANSMITTAL LETTER: To the decision-maker (for this purpose, that is the Professor) —watch the video found in Lesson Tools for more information.

TITLE PAGE: Assignment title, plagiarism statement, and course information.

SECTION I: A short executive summary (ES) of the entire report —not to exceed (NTE) a half-page followed by a page break and NTE three paragraphs/single-spaced.

Executive Summary (ES) should answer this…if the decision-maker only reads your ES would the decision-maker want to move on through your report, or could they make a decision based on your ES?

SECTION II: The unique business journal critique essay (the article provided as part of the assignment)—watch the video found in Lesson Tools for more information.

SECTION III: The Internship Site update.

  • A current update of three internship objectives.
  • Raw data proof of internship objective current status (analyze and graphically present raw data).
  • Performance hours for the period and to date.

SECTION IV: Reference page, with references listed in APA format.

  • Any appendices, if needed (outside sources must be referenced in the main report to be valid to report).


  • Journal Critique 4 to 5 pages
  • Site and Objectives update 4 to 5 pages
  • Transmittal memorandum, cover page, and references are not in the page count.


The completed report cites three outside sources. Two sources should be from reviewed business journals.
