Kastman Breuch, Lee-Ann M.
Technical Communication Quarterly, v10 n2 p193-210 Spr 2001
Notes that while many technical communication instructors declare the benefits of client projects, too often instructors do not prepare students to interact with clients. Reviews a qualitative case study that demonstrates the difficulty students can have interacting with clients. Relates how students may not always be prepared to listen or respond to clients in transactional or "real world" writing projects. (SG)
