This course is designed to mix English standards (as outlined by the Maine Learning Results) with professionally relevant reading and writing. The primary focus is technical writing. Students will develop the ability to recognize and understand audience in the various modes of professional writing, and know how to match style and voice to those particular audiences. Students will also develop research techniques and synthesize and present data and findings.
A student attending Technical English who puts in a reasonable effort and maintains acceptable attendance will understand the various forms of professional writing and the requirements of each mode. Research techniques, synthesizing and presenting information, and reading comprehension will also be a focus in the classroom.
