Work Together, Write Together: Group Projects in Technical Writing.
Gross, Gerard J.
This paper describes a collaborative technique for teaching technical writing, a technique that is designed to give students experience with a type of writing done rarely in the classroom but employed frequently in the work world. Students, divided into two groups, work together in composing a proposal for an extensive research project or a more modest proposal for actual implementation, to be followed by a final report of the project. Writing tasks are assigned according to individual student's expertise in such fields as environmental resource management, forestry, earth sciences, mathematics, and so on. Peer evaluation of the final products forms the basis for grading. (KS)
