Now that you’ve read about what Technical Writing is, it’s time to put those concepts to use!
Locate an instruction manual for a product you may own. If you don’t have any, you can find one here: https://www.manualslib.com/. (Links to an external site.)
Analyze the manual you choose against the characteristics listed in this week’s chapter for good technical writing. Write up your analysis into a document, and submit it via this page to complete the assignment.
For easy reference, here again are the 6 characteristics from the reading:
- Focus on audience
- Rhetorical, persuasive, purposeful, and problem-oriented
- Design Centered
- Research and Technology Oriented
