Course Description

In ENG2570, we will hone writing skills that are often used in the workplace. Through eight units of study, we will create various deliverables (business letters, memos, minutes, process papers, and reports) and think through how best to harness the power of word choice, tone, approach, revision, and follow-through.

• unit 1: annotation, MLA citation, best practices
• unit 2: organization
• unit 3: revision
• unit 4: audience and purpose
• unit 5: process project
• unit 6: reports
• unit 7: meetings and collaboration
• unit 8: reflection and presentation

Units 2-4 and 6-7 will require the preparation of short response papers that reflect an understanding of one or more of the deliverables named above. Unit 5 will culminate in the creation of a process project, and unit 8 will result in self-reflection and a brief presentation.
