Finding a fresh perspective on your community

Preparing the Written Report

After the visit, the team can begin to work on the written report and the slide presentation. Plan to meet a day or two after the visit, while everyone's observations are still fresh.

The easiest way to write the report is to follow the Assessment Guide and write on each topic. A sample report is included in the Supplement section of the Community Swap notebook. Include each team member's comments on every topic. Typically, reports range from six to ten pages. Before the final draft is written, each team member should have a copy of the report to review, and provide comments and suggestions.

Extension Unit Leaders can provide help in organizing the report and identifying important issues. The report should describe positive and negative perspectives, tactfully and objectively.
