Writing Achievement in Technical Education.
Ediger, Marlow
Technical education students need to realize high expectations and goals in writing. They have a plethora of purposes to be good communicators in written endeavors. This paper first outlines the reasons why they need to be careful with written communications, and then lists some of the purposes for which their communications are written. The paper also discusses the mechanics of written communication, from using a word processor to observing necessary grammar rules. It then proceeds to discuss writing stylistics, such as variety in sentence construction. The paper concludes by outlining the different types of sentences, i.e., interrogative, declarative, imperative, and exclamatory. It notes that in technical education classes, students need to practice writing within a utilitarian framework, since they will ultimately practice their written communication in the workplace. (NKA)
