Online Class Period on Making Connections
Description of Class Period
Our lesson on making connections in technical writing is designed to help engineering and science students avoid discontinuities between sentences and connect those sentences in engaging ways. Hindering many engineers and scientists from this effort is that they know only two or three ways to connect sentences. This lesson teaches them more than ten different sentences openers used in scientific writing. This class period is suited for a course in technical communication.
