The text immerses students in various case studies and projects featuring a fictitious Canadian company, much like a potential employer of college or university graduates. The new edition of Technical Communication continues to offer clear guidelines for all documents, annotated writing models, realistic assignments, and a writing and grammar handbook, allowing students to place themselves in professional roles and to respond to realistic technical writing challenges.  Additionally, updated Instructor Supplements and Text Enrichment Site allow for a more comprehensive study of the Technical Communications field.
