Technical Writing

Fall
2017

 

All dates are when reading and assignments are due.

Work from the web schedule; do not print everything at the beginning of the semester. Dates and assignments may change.

Within each unit, you are responsible for scheduling your own time and working on the material. However, discussion question postings should be posted early during the unit to allow time for responses.

Due dates of major assignments are on this schedule. Homework due dates may be listed with the unit material, but all homework is always due by the last day of the unit.
