A Document Design Model Applying Research to Technical Writing.
Redish, Janice D.; Battison, Robbin M.
Intended as an introduction to an interactive writing workshop, this paper presents a general description of the Document Design Center's writing model to be used by workshop participants. Suggesting that the model is an aid in analyzing and revising writing, in developing new documents, and in applying writing research to practical writing tasks, the paper lists the three stages in the writing process model: prewriting, writing, and postwriting. It then notes the questions on scope, purpose, audience, reader's task, and constraints that writers must deal with during the prewriting stage, and offers a brief example of headlining, one of the skills developed during the writing stage. Finally, it describes the steps in the postwriting stage: reviewing, revising, editing, and evaluating. (MM)
