Detailed Description of Responsibilities
Task One: Thumbnail Sketch
As you found out from your readings this week, effective technical documentstake substantial time, planning, and revising. Speciﬁcally, good documents beginas rough drafts known as thumbnail sketches (
, page 273). The ﬁrstpage of the PDF document you submit for this module will be a thumbnail sketchof your document. Ideally, this will be done by hand, with pencil, on a piece of realpaper and then scanned to your computer for inclusion in your complete Module2 PDF. However, an electronic version of a thumbnail sketch will be accepted. What I am looking for in the thumbnail sketch is evidence that you planned yourdocument by taking into consideration the design principles laid out in chapter11. I want to see evidence that you thought about image placement, contentorganization, alignment, and subheadings.
Task Two: Netiquette Guide for E-mail
Let’s face it: having to engage in a writing genre with which you are entirely unfamiliar is scary. Imagine having to write a poem for the local creative writing magazine press, given no instructions and a deadline of next week. Right.
