Markel, Mike. Technical Communication. 11th ed. Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2015.
It appears that there is a newer version of the textbook (with an additional author); however, I do not have this copy so I am satisfied using an older version that costs less. Moreover, with the pandemic, the textbook is available in a pdf format online.
Students should have the Microsoft Office suite. We will work mostly in Word but we may have to create documents in Publisher and in PPt. Access to the ”Paint” app (which comes with most computers) would support their inclusion/manipulation of (free) stock photographs, graphs, etc. to be added in their deliverables. They will need to tape a final presentation (which can be done using a smart phone or a computer camera).
Final Exam: July 23rd 1-4 p.m.
