Assignments, each of which were designed to build and reinforce different skills related to the field of technical communication. These skills include professional self-representation (cultivating ethos), audience awareness, ethical technical communication practices, research, document design, and report writing.
This portfolio is your chance to showcase the best of your work in this course to peers, potential employers, and others.
To complete this project, choose three completed assignments and revise them, then write a single cover letter that reflects on (1) each project’s rhetorical situation, (2) the choices you originally made, (3) the revisions you’ve made, and (4) why you made them.
Your revisions can be related to either content or design, but must be substantive and somehow add value to the finished work. The goal of the revisions is to show that your competency with the skills listed above has increased during the course of the semester—you’re trying to convince your readers that you are a talented and knowledgeable person capable of growth.
The specific required portions of this assignment are: A cover letter that discusses each assignment, detailing the rhetorical situation and the choices and revisions you made, along with rationale for each An original copy of the assignment sheet for each deliverable (found on Canvas) A copy of the original assignment deliverable A copy of the revised assignment for each deliverable
