So You're Going to Teach Technical Writing: A Primer for Beginners.
Harris, John Sterling
The Technical Writing Teacher, v2 n1 p1-6 Fall 1974
Presented in a question-answer format, this article on teaching technical writing at the college level anticipates the concerns facing the beginning instructor. Following an explanation of technical writing and how it differs from other writing, the article discusses where technical courses are taught, explains the difference between technical writing programs in two-year colleges and those in universities, suggests that the teacher assigned to a technical writing course have previous experience teaching other kinds of writing, considers instructional materials, and explains how to acquire additional training in technical writing.
