In this second course on writing and editing, students learn about the role of the editor, choosing a level of edit, and editing the documents of others. They learn how to give and receive criticism respectfully. They also learn to revise documents that have several authors so that the documents have a unified style and meet the needs of readers, and to use tools for revision. Students will explore issues such as writing for translation and for non-native speakers of English and the influence of literacy levels on writing. They examine style guides, discuss the implications of writing to style guides, and learn to write to style guides. This course is a prerequisite for all courses in Term 5.
