Choose a community of your choice and a mitigation project that will help to reduce "mitigate" at least one hazard that the community has. You will be asked to present this project as you would a real world project for approval and defend your idea. For example, a mitigation project has been suggested to create a lesson plan to be offered to faith groups to teach non technological people how to use technology (I.e. social media, zoom, alert systems etc.) during a disaster to be able to better communicate and function during the disaster. Another proposed project is to work out mitigation options for ECSU aircraft and high dollar simulators in the STEM complex first floor.

If you do a traditional mitigation project for your final project the expectations are

a 3 pages of text (not counting title, abstract, table of content, reference pages).

APA formatted with at least 5 sources on the reference page that are cited in the text

to describe a hazard and a mitigation plan on how to eliminate or reduce the hazard. Have a specific plan with details.

Include headings such as introduction, conclusion, problem/hazard, consequences of the hazard, plan to mitigate hazard, pros and cons to the plan etc.

The abstract is a brief summary of the paper, allowing readers to quickly review the main points and purpose of the paper. The Abstract is more than just introducing the topic but it is telling what the reader can expect in the paper including some of the findings and conclusion. All of this is done in 150-250 words. Notice that the abstract is written in block format with no paragraph indentions. Also note on the bottom the inclusion of key words that are used to find your paper if a researcher was looking for information that your paper could help them with for their particular need. Note that not all papers require an abstract, and abstracts do NOT count as part of your page count for meeting minimum page requirements for an assignment.

The introduction should be something that catches the interest of your reader and makes them want to learn more. It should introduce your problem and prove that your problem or your writing is worth reading. That means that it should have citations to give your thoughts and ideas credibility. Remember with out citations your writing is only your opinion.

Notice that the writing is now using indents, 12 pt font in a normal font such as Times New Roman. The margins are consistent with 1” around the page and lines are double spaced. Remember other APA rules such as paragraphs should have at least 2 sentences and to not leave headings hanging with less than two lines under them at the bottom of the page. Also notice that this paper is written in third person passive, no pronouns such as I, me, you etc. This is the proper way to write. If an item is not cited it is understood to be the author’s opinion so no reason to claim that it is yours, it is understood already.


The introduction should all contain the purpose of your paper or project to explain to the reader your intent. This can be done as part of the overall introduction or with a sub-heading (level 2) with a title such as Purpose. This is also advisable for research papers to use a sub heading for your research question(s) and other important pieces so the reader can quickly find them.


It is good in most papers to include a background section. This section allows the writer to give the background needed for the reader to understand the rest of the writing. This frames the issue, case, problem etc. that is the core of the writing.


It is a good idea to use multiple headings to separate ideas when in the body of the paper like this. Headings serve as an outline for the author. Meaning that if the author outlines the topics and what they think the main points of the paper are, such as assignment considerations or points, and writes them in as their headings then it is a matter of filling in the blanks between the headings to write the paper. Headings help the author to make sure that they have addressed all of the major points needed. Headings also make it easier for the reader to find certain pieces of information more efficiently. Often ideas that are given the go ahead to move on are not because they were the better of the ideas but that the reader was able to better understand it due to the way it was communicated.

Using the heading tool will also help you with longer papers to add a Table of Content (TOC). Word has a feature that makes adding and updating the table of content with a push of a button by using the heading level that has been assigned to it. Note though that the default headings in word are not APA compliant so they will need to be modified by clicking the right mouse while in the heading tool.

Additional Headings

The paper should have multiple headings to help explain the topic better and facilitates a smoother flow. Headings also help the reader stay on track as well.


The conclusion is a very important part of the paper and should not be rushed through just because the page requirement has been met. The conclusion is the call for action. It is the author doing one last sales pitch for their idea and a call for action to the reader to motivate them to do something about what you have written. The conclusion should also be a very quick recap of the major points for the reader. The conclusion should also tie back to the hook that was used to get the reader’s attention in the introduction.
