Writing Guidelines for Engineering and Science Students

Penn State University provides a great web resource for all engineering and
science students with the models, exercises, and advice that it gives for
over a half dozen type of documents they will likely encounter in their
schooling and eventual professions.  On the left hand side of the homepage
visitors will find "Student Resources", "Instructor Resources", and links to
the "Contributors", which include "Virginia Tech", "University of Illinois",
and "Georgia Tech".  The "Introduction" on the homepage, offers the
following basics to consider when starting a paper: "Assessing the
Audience", "Selecting the Format", and "Crafting the Style".  Also on the
homepage the site gives links to guidance on "Presentations",
"Correspondence", "Formal Reports", "Proposals", "Instructions", and
"Journal Articles".  The "Design of Presentation Slides", under the
"Presentations" link, demonstrates the use of the assertion-evidence
structure for presentation slides, as opposed to the typical PowerPoint
template, along with many resources on the left hand side of the page that
tout the benefits of that structure. [KMG]
