Course Description

The second of the two-part unit emphasizes the ultimate goal of establishing common ground through the process of revision-the cornerstone of technical writing. While many writers can compose a technical document, not all can elevate it into a highly-effective tool of communication. Here, writers learn how to improve even their best documents. To accomplish this goal, students will take their previously composed documents (from unit 1), as well as be assigned "sloppy" copies, and through lecture and application-provided in a specialized handout of over 25 useful techniques of the trade-learn the step-by-step, time-required process of taking a document, at any level, and turning it into a lean, polished and useful document, sure to increase any writer's credibility as a technical writer.

No textbook is required.
