This week, you will plan and outline your choice of a white paper, an e-book, a grant proposal, or instructional materials by using a mind map.
Select a technical writing topic of your choice. You may choose 1 of the case studies or deliverables from Topic 2.4 or 2.5, or you may choose to outline an external deliverable, such as a user manual for a household item that you use regularly or a grant proposal for a cause that you are invested in.

Draft a mind map to help plan the essential areas of your white paper, an e-book, grant proposal, or instructional materials. Map out the following:
Identify your audience.
Identify your communication goals.
Research the approach for the document you want to create.
Identify major topics and subtopics that your material will cover.

Create your mind map using Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, or alternative document software. Review Topic 9 for mind map examples.
After the completion of your mind map, prepare a brief reflection, approximately 350 words or fewer, that analyzes your planning process, by addressing the following:
Explain why you included the elements that you did within your mind map.
Evaluate whether you feel that the process of creating a mind map helped you conceptualize the deliverable that you planned. Explain why or why not.
Explain whether you would utilize this process again for outlining a project in the future. Explain why or why not.
Cite at least 2 sources beyond your textbook to support your assignment.
Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.
