Teachers of technical writing are frequently handicapped by a lack of material to back up discussions in the classroom & in textbooks. Directions in Technical Writing & Communication will help to overcome this weakness. This book may be used in several ways: as an adjunct to a standard textbook & to provide authoritative examples of practices & techniques & as a resource book in companies & government agencies to show writers & other communicators what is being done in technical communication. From these readings, students will discover that the principles learned in class can be carried over into their careers. The readings will impress on students the value of clear, dynamic, & well organized professional writing; & the selections will make a valuable reference book in documentation & library services.
