Course Description

This part of the program focuses on the composition process and the types of documents unique to the field. To gain facility in the skills and tools of technical writing, students will compose memos, analyses, reports, abstracts, letters and emails, all designed to establish audience-needs; maintain the purpose and occasion for writing; and make the document completely useful to the reader. Through lecture, writing, group and class activities and discussions, students will complete this part knowing how to compose technical documents based on six distinct stages of writing; to incorporate the eight principles of effective writing; to apply rhetorical and stylistic devices; and to begin the process of revision.
