PROFESSIONAL & TECHNICAL WRITING
The first sample is an informative pamphlet I designed during an Independent Study course where I worked as a research coder focusing on the Write to Law Project during Summer 2020; the other two samples were completed in my Writing for Business & Government class during Fall 2020. All three projects embody the mission of the program by teaching written and rhetorical literacy through coursework and providing practical writing, editing, and document design skills for the 21st century.
WRITE TO LAW PROJECT INFORMATIVE PAMPHLET
The Write to Law Project explores what happens when students start to write in law school. The goal for this project was to know what helps and hinders this transition to enable colleges and law schools ensure students make this transition smoothly. The research we conducted will contribute dual knowledge about the teaching of writing and the transfer of writing skills from one context to another.
UALR RHETORIC & WRITING DEPARTMENT BROCHURE
In this assignment I created a brochure highlighting the Department of Rhetoric and Writing and how the program is leading the way in the state Arkansas oﬀering the only Bachelor of Arts degree in Professional and Technical Writing (PTW) and a ﬂexible Master’s Degree Program. For myself the program has helped me explore multiple career paths as a result of the technologies and writing styles I've learned through the coursework.
ARKANSAS CHILDREN'S DISASTER REUNIFICATION
The purpose of this project was to define the framework for state and/or Federal support of a coordinated, timely and efficient children’s disaster reunification response in Arkansas. This project required students to work collaboratively in small task-oriented groups focusing on writing, editing, and formatting. The finished product effectively gives an active voice to the disaster plan via plain language. The message provides readers with a safe, organized plan for reunification.
