RRR PROPOSAL--Please use the guide from the syllabus (p 5) and repeated here:
In the proposal, please include the following sections:
Revisit: Introduce me to the piece you are choosing for this project, discuss why you have chosen it, and tell me some background on this piece – When did you write it? For what context? Who is your target audience? What are your ultimate goals for this project? Do you plan to publish it, do a public reading, or present it to an employer or graduate program? What kind of revision process has it gone through?
Rethink: Analyze the draft, and rethink the overall scope, focus, organization, language, and goals. What are the draft’s strengths? What do you plan to work on during revision? What will you be adding to the draft? What will you be omitting? Please mark up the draft that you are attaching to the proposal – make notes on how you see the draft as it stands and what you plan to revise.
Rewrite: Sketch out a plan for how you envision yourself rewriting this piece. Will you be doing additional research? When and how do you plan to do this? What are your writing goals for each week of this project?

Update regarding the coronavirus:
First, be safe. Pay attention to what you are being asked to do as far as handwashing and social distancing. Be kind to one another, too. There is no need to horde goods or blame others. We are all in this togther.
