Exercise

  1. With the help of your instructor, form small groups according to major fields of study. As a committee, find three different documents written for readers in your field of study: perhaps a newsletter for alumni, an announcement of a change in your major's curriculum, and an article from a professional journal reporting research. Analyze the physical design of the documents on the basis of the principle and techniques of document design discussed in this chapter. Decide how well the designs work depending on the purposes for which the documents were written. Write a short committee report for your classmates that lays out your analysis.

Assignment

Following an outline that you have written of the contents of the results (product) of your term research, write a plan for the physical design of your project. Be specific about how the design will appeal to your intended readers and will serve the purposes for which you are writing the document.
