Technical Writing, Technical Communication Writing, Reports, White Papers, Memoranda, Instructions Analysis

Abstract
Strategies in Technical Writing is an Open Education Resource text designed for community-college-level students being introduced to technical writing conventions. The text focuses on the main genres involved in professional communication, the writing situation, research, and citation. This text was adapted by Lumen Learning from materials developed by Dr. Elizabeth Lohman as part of the Z Degree Program and originally provided by Tidewater Community College. Technical Writing is a modified version of the Lumen Technical Writing book from the SUNY OER textbook list. The original version of this book was released under a CC-BY license and is copyrighted by Lumen Learning. It was then heavily redeveloped by Joshua Dickinson, Associate Professor of English at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY. The text includes a list of changes.

Description
This Open Educational Resources text overviews the fields of technical writing and professional communication. It includes sections introducing students to the field of study, audience-centered communications, APA and MLA formats, language and tone, visuals, websites, memos, letters, descriptive and prescriptive reports, classification and partition reports, white papers, informative presentations, research, problem analysis, summaries and responses, proposals, feasibility reports, persuasive presentations, and writing conventions.

Rating

Subject
Literature, Composition, Drama, Poetry, Short Story, Novel

Abstract
Literary Voice overviews the conventions of short stories, poems, dramatic works, and novels. The text features several chapters on the writing process and is focused on getting students to experience literature. Sections on reading literature as a critic and writing about literature in academic settings are accompanied by chapters on the genres.

Description
The Literary Voice is an introduction to literature text created through the SUNY OER Initiative. With few exceptions (noted in the credits for each page), the mini-lectures are self-created. The text has a genre-based focus, with the readings being listed within each genre's chapter in rough chronology. Many of the works are linked. The text contains five plays and a lengthy literary nonfiction chapter in addition to the fiction and poetry chapters. Siddhartha, Hermann Hesse's modernist novel of India, is included in its entirety. I intentionally include more readings than any one course would get through in case instructors wish to tailor the content. Just as easily, they could organize the course either chronologically or thematically. Several chapters discuss academic writing, specifically as it applies to literary analysis. Several of the readings are personal favorites that adapt well to an introduction to literature survey.

Studies in Mythology
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Abstract
Studies in Mythology is an introductory text for a survey of myth course. It can be organized chronologically, geographically, or thematically. Included are sections from Frazier's study of myth, The Golden Bough, as well as Dante's Inferno and sections on tricksters and Irish myth. The book focuses on world mythologies and archetypal approaches to the analysis of myth.

Description
Text includes sections on responding to literature, Greek myth (including several chapters from Bulfinch), defining myth's functions, Irish myths & legends, the Tao te Ching, American folklore & myth, American horror, comic books, MLA style, and student resources. Prior to my adaptation, this course was created from materials originally developed from an American Literature course at J. Sargent Reynolds Community College. Studies in Mythology is a modified version of the Lumen American Literature II text. The original version of this book was released under a CC-BY license and is copyright by Lumen Learning. In past versions of the course, I have used primary texts such as the Finnish Kalevala, the Homeric Hyms, or contemporary works influenced by mythology such as Gaiman’s Ameican Gods. Along with this OER text, students will be reading the Pinsky translation of Inferno, as well as the Frank Herbert mythology-based novel Dune. Several excellent sites exist on the web and collect images and out-of-copyright myth texts. I include some links to these, but the focus is mostly on the application of students’ analytical skills to the new reading material.

Arguing Through Writing is heavily adapted from the Lumen Learning English Composition 2 book on the SUNY OER list of texts. The textbook focuses on the writing process, as well as rhetorical modes. Emphasis is on the modes of causal analysis, argument, definition, and classification. MLA style and academic writing moves are featured.

The original version of this book was released under a CC-BY license and is copyright by Lumen Learning. It was then developed in March 2020 by Joshua Dickinson, Associate Professor of English at Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY. The changes to this book listed are released under a CC-BY-SA license and are copyright by Joshua Dickinson of Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY.

The text focuses on classification, definition, causal analysis, and argumentation, working with these writing modes and pairing those with relevant texts. Several chapters are devoted to playing the writing game and knowing its moves. Visual arguments, MLA style, preparing annotated bibliographies, and film analysis are covered. The reader includes selections from Michel de Montaigne, Steven Pinker, H. G. Wells' history, Flannery O'Connor, Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Waldo Emerson, Gordon Allport, and Stephen Leacock.

Abstract
World Literature covers a range of world fiction and nonfiction readings, including coverage of trickster tales, origin myths, memoirs, novels, short stories, and poems. Focus is on Native American, Japanese, Chinese, and Islamic readings. Featured authors include Kabir, Lao Tzu, Izumi Shikubu, Zitkal-Šá, Langston Hughes, Sappho, Plato, Margaret Atwood, and Rabindranath Tagore. The title also covers the writing process, literary analysis arguments, and and a general academic writing overview.

Description
World Literature (formerly Survey of non-Western Literature) focuses on varied readings from multiple genres. The readings are diverse and allow for chronological, generic, geographical, or thematic organization by instructors. This text is collected from several copyright-cleared resources and its readings would serve as the basis for my ENG 195: Survey of non-Western Literature course at Jefferson Community College. The balance of the readings for ENG 195 come from non-Western cultures, although there are some key texts from Western cultures. See the List of Changes for more specific information on the readings. To create the course, I adopted Lumen Learning's Introduction to Literature course shell, whose How to Use This Collection is authored by Thomas Chester and which operates with a CC-BY license and was provided by Ivy Tech Community College.
