About the course

Technical writing conveys messages in a succinct format. This class will focus on the writing skills necessary for professional and college-level writing where brevity with accuracy is key. We will bolster grammar, spelling, and punctuation skills so that writing is clear and professional. In-class exercises will teach necessary writing principles for technical papers, essays and resumes, while at-home work will include writing a short research paper with citations (student to choose the topic). In-class participation and handwriting (or typing) is expected every week.
