29 Discussion: Technical Documents

For the next few days, I would like you to look for examples of technical writing in the real world: brochures, correspondence, product instructions, reports and media announcements, to name a few.  As you are studying the different documents you find, jot down the strengths and weaknesses you find in both the content and design of the documents.


In other words, what makes them good examples of professional documents and what makes them weak examples.


Then, on line, describe one kind of document you found and what you feel the strength or weakness is.  Discuss with your classmates why you think it is good or bad.  Good luck.  If possible, include the document as an attachment for classmates to look at.
