Design Discourse: Composing and Revising Programs in Professional and Technical Writing addresses the complexities of developing professional and technical writing programs. The essays in the collection offer reflections on efforts to bridge two cultures — what the editors characterize as the "art and science of writing" — often by addressing explicitly the tensions between them. Design Discourse offers insights into the high-stakes decisions made by program designers as they seek to "function at the intersection of the practical and the abstract, the human and the technical."

Introduction to Professional and Public Writing is dedicated to introducing students to a lifelong commitment of engaging with these problems that matter. As an academic discipline, Writing Studies’ contribution to engaging with problems can be applied to all areas of study and to all types of problems because we focus on the way language itself—discourse—is created and exchanged in the service of engaging problems. Writing Studies deepens students’ rhetorical awareness of how the ongoing conversations between groups of people shape and express the problems that matter. According to Aristotle, being rhetorically aware means understanding “the best means of persuasion in any given situation.” It means understanding the deep logic that explains why an author has selected a particular genre to deliver a particular message to an audience. We all know writing is hard, but we commit to writing well because of the vital work it does in the world in helping humans preserve and extend our ability to come together. As theorist Anne Beaufort writes, “[w]hat writing expertise is ultimately concerned with is becoming engaged in a particular community of writers who dialogue across texts, argue, and build on each other’s work” (18).

Proofreading Your Own Writing Handout PDF

It is useful to remember that proofreading/editing are best kept distinct from your process of drafting and revision. If you are still thinking about and re-working major aspects of the project (focus, organization, argument, theoretical framework, etc.), then your focus is still what we would call “global revision” or “higher order concerns” rather than your surface mechanics. The strategies described here are more relevant when you are working with writing that is much nearer to “done,” where you’ve worked out the substance of what you’re going to say, and now you’re “polishing the surface.”

0.0 stars

Before students can understand specific aspects of successful professional messages (like organization or style), they need to grasp prerequisites about context. Building on Aristotle, this tutorial helps students think about a workplace document as one of three aspects of context represented by the rhetorical triangle, the writer and his or her purpose. It teaches students to analyze the four purposes for which professionals create written messages in the workplace.

When encountering a new, unfamiliar, or complicated communication task, it can be helpful to analyze the communication situation by focusing on your purpose, your role as communicator, your audience’s needs, and any resources or constraints related to the situation.These guidelines were developed using a framework proposed by Keith Grant Davie (1997). See “Rhetorical situations and their constituents,” Rhetoric Review, 15(2), 264–79.

The teaching of writing in colleges and universities tends to focus on academic essays and research papers. Writing in the disciplines, on the other hand, refers to writing assignments tailored to the genres of a specific discipline or field. For instance, a science course might require students to write a lab report, while a sociology course might assign a case study.
