The process-oriented advanced technical writing course described in this paper leads students progressively through the writing and editing processes while involving them in the technical writing of their respective disciplines. The readings, exercises, and report assignments used in the course are discussed to show how these activities awaken students to a sense of themselves as writers and to an awareness of the writing processes and the written products of professionals in their disciplines. Also discussed are the editing workshops that provide practice in evaluating and revising papers that students have prepared for courses in their respective disciplines. (RL)
