This is the post for the week of April 2, 2018.
This week you will continue writing your Genre Analysis Report, and you will write a Progress Report that tells me about your project.
This is a one-page assignment with a fast turn-around.
Based on a suggestion regarding website organization, I will begin duplicating posts from the Course Website in the Announcements in Canvas. The information is the same. The idea is to make it easier to get to.
Readings for the Week
- Progress Report Assignment
- From Technical Writing by Hamlin, Rubio, and DeSilva
- From Style for Students Online: Effective Technical Writing in the Information Age by Schall
