Report Writing Workshop Content

In addition to an overview of report format and content, each one-day workshop will cover the details of processing the report; choosing a report style; setting timelines for the report review, approval, and release process, and the use of Exit Interviews. Tips on how to write effectively and recommendations for Editorial Committee functions will be provided. The distinction between facts and findings will be discussed and demonstrated through group exercises. Additional exercises will provide practice in developing and evaluating grand jury recommendations and in critiquing sample reports. This workshop is intended to provide helpful tools enabling grand juries to improve the quality, readability, accuracy, and effectiveness of their final reports.
