Courses, Components, and Exercises in Technical Communication.
Stevenson, Dwight W., Ed.
This anthology contains 21 articles on teaching methods and assignments in technical writing. The anthology is divided into three major sections. The first section, "Courses," presents plans for alternative approaches to the teaching of technical writing. The second section, "Components," offers a variety of activities for major segments within a technical writing course. The third section, "Exercises," suggests individual activities that can be completed during a few class periods within a course or component. Individual articles focus on the case method, simulation and in-class writing, group projects, the functional writing model, writing for publication, technical illustration, environmental writing, decision making and problem solving, and teaching nonnative speakers how to use English language articles. A supplementary reading list is included. (RL)
