ENGL 123   Technical Writing I* (3 Hours)

Prerequisites : ENGL 121.

This course introduces students to technical and professional writing. Students will apply the writing process, engaging rhetorical strategies, when constructing typical workplace correspondence, such as memos, letters, reports, and digital documents (including writings for social media and asynchronous presentations). By the end of the semester, students should have written approximately 5,000 words in revised and edited documents. Students will focus on effective technical writing criteria: clarity, conciseness, document design, organization, and accuracy. Accuracy specifically requires students to follow standard English grammar and punctuation rules.
