Are you confused about what technical writing is? Do you feel uncomfortable having to create writing assignments or assess them? This book has the answers!

Asked if these types of writing are used in business, most teachers would probably say no. But when a student writes a resume they are writing a persuasive document. When a person writes a trip report, they are writing a descriptive document. When a person writes a feasibility study, they are writing an analytic paper. Students are using the types, or discourses of writing, but doing so from a professional, not academic aspect. Teaching to the Future is a straightforward book about technical writing.
