Writing About History: Technical Writing

Print PDF Writing Model: "The Telegraph," is an example of a technical document. It contains elements often found in these compositions, such as steps showing a process and visual aids.

Read the entire document, then explore its elements. Use what you learn to outline and draft your own technical document. You may also use the writing model as a self-check—does your composition have similar elements that make for good technical writing?
