Overview

Strategies for Technical Communication in the Workplace, Books a la Carte Edition, MLA Update Edition / Edition 3

NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products.

For introductory courses in Technical Communication.

This version of Strategies for Technical Communication in the Workplace has been updated to reflect the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016). The 8th edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.


Complete but streamlined coverage, with a focus on audience and purpose

Based on the acclaimed Technical Communication by Lannon and Gurak, Strategies for Technical Communication in the Workplace prepares students for workplace writing through a clear and concise writing style, useful checklists, practical applications, numerous sample documents, and coverage of technology and global issues. The third edition addresses changing technology in the workplace with a complete chapter on social media, updated examples, and sample documents. This brief and affordable text is accessible to students of all writing levels.
