Teaching Technical Writing in a Lab Course in Chemical Engineering
Lombardo, Stephen J.
Chemical Engineering Education, v44 n1 p58-62 Win 2010
Techniques are presented for improving the technical writing of chemical engineering students enrolled in an undergraduate laboratory course. The principles of writing covered are adopted from the book, Style: Lessons in Clarity and Grace, by Joseph M. Williams: General examples of writing are taken from this book and then are recast into examples closer to the technical writing currently being practiced by the students as they prepare their lab reports.
