Technical Communication

Writing – it ain't just for lit majors. From the classroom to the lab to the workplace, you'll encounter the need for writing clear, informative, and persuasive communications. With Technical Communication, you'll learn how to engage your audience – be them fellow students, a room full of colleagues at a conference presentation, or in a journal submission – with an effective, reader-friendly style. Technical writing can be perceived as stiff, and while often necessarily precise, your writing, according to Technical Communication by Markel, doesn't have to be stuffy. From manuals and study findings to presentations and grant proposals, this accessible and thorough technical writing textbook also teaches students how to rely on critical thinking and to tailor communications for non-technical audiences and different cultures. Bonus sections review MLA, APA and IEEE style guidelines and annotated model documents.
