An information brief is a short summary of an important issue. It is sometimes information about a government policy or bill that is to be voted on. For our purposes, the information brief is used to convey the basic and most important information related to an issue in family development. Introduce the topic, provide context, and explain in lay terms how this issue affects families. Your brief should be no more than 2.5 pages in length. You must also provide sources in APA format that are research-based. You may choose to provide some additional resources that are research-based but are worded in such a way as to be accessible to all. You should dress-up your information brief with graphs, tables, and/or images that are relevant to your topic. This helps others who see your brief want to engage with it, and by extension, with you. We will look at examples of these types of papers before yours is due.
