Using Television Technology to Teach Technical Writing.
Wallisch, Bill
Technical writing teachers at the U.S. Air Force Academy enhance student motivation by bringing real Air Force writing situations into the classroom through short videotapes which allow students to see how scientists and engineers cope with report writing in their daily work. Also, a special English honors course, which is part of the "Blue Tube" program, teaches technical writing within a special television production context. (Author/CMV)
