Writing Guidelines for Engineering and Science Students

Writing Guidelines for Engineering and Science Students [http://www.writing.eng.vt.edu/] - Crafting meaningful and articulate lab presentations and correspondence can be difficult for anyone, including engineers and other scientists. This particular set of resources is deigned to teach engineering and science students about creating and writing materials such as resumes, formal laboratory reports, presentation slides, and so on. The guidelines are gathered into several different sections, including "Introduction", "Presentations", "Correspondence", and "Formal Reports". There is material for instructors here as well, and the offerings include pieces on the design of writing assignments, the interactive teaching of writing, and the evaluation of writing assignments. Finally, the site also contains a number of writing exercises on grammar, punctuation, and word usage. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2008. http://scout.wisc.edu/
