Developing Proposals
To make a proposal, first establish that a need or problem exists. You want to make the readers care about the problem you are going to address, by painting a vivid picture of the problem. Also you want to show how the problem affects people, both in the immediate audience and the general public.

start by finding a topic or identifying a problem.
Next research your topic.
Formulate a claim. Example: Every home should be equipped with a well stocked emergency kit that can sustain inhabitants for at least 3 days in a natural disaster.
Prepare your proposal and think about how you will organize it.
Finally get and give responses to your proposal.

"A should do B because of C."
"A (Our students) B (should come to our games) C (because it will give the players more energy during the game)."
