The purpose of a policy position presentation is to generate support for an issue. It describes a position on an issue and the rationale for that position. In writing about this issue, you must examine your opinion of the issue critically. Prior to creating your policy position presentation, define and limit your issue carefully. Use the Internet or Strayer databases to research your issue thoroughly. Consider feasibility, cost-effectiveness, and political or social climate when evaluating possible solutions and courses of action.

- Introduction (identification of the issue and statement of the position).
