Susan Smith (Faculty)

Though I have not used it in the classroom yet, I plan to do so within the coming month, when I will be working with three different corporations and their technical writers who all wish to improve their writing skills and understanding of the report writing process. I spent about 1.5 hours reviewing these materials - reading them and searching for what will be appropriate for my intended audience (engineers in 3 different industrial fields). The information is all relevant and current for my intended audience and is presented in an orderly and appropriate sequence for taking technical writers through the process of creating a written report. I intend to use these general materials in concert with in-class writing assignments that the students will produce (either bring to class already-existing samples or work on an upcoming report). Working with their own materials and with an actual assignment will help those who attend the training to understand how the concepts in this lesson apply to the work for which they are actually responsible.

Technical Remarks:

The materials are straightforward and clear. Though I may adapt them, rather than use them as presented, they may be used either way. Anyone working with these materials for the first time won't have a problem making good use of them.
