This course helps business professionals improve their writing so they are better equipped to accomplish their educational and professional goals. Students consider how essential forms of business writing—memos, cover letters, proposals, presentations, and reports—address an audience, make claims, invoke prior claims, use key terms, and engage quantitative and visual evidence. The course fosters skills in drafting, revising, peer review, and using sources responsibly. It also offers sustained practice in constructing clear and precise sentences, coherent paragraphs, and well-ordered documents.
