授業計画:

This year’s course is called “The Craft of Editing”. Although a few “natural” writers can produce well organized and clearly presented first drafts, for most of us, writing is often laborious and frustrating. We will discuss and practice implementing methods to identify weaknesses and improve technical writing. Class topics are shown in the schedule below.
