re: Suggestions for "Interesting" Techwriting Book?
Howdy from a longtime lurker. :)
I recently left the technical writing field to homeschool my 7 yo son.
Thanks to my participation in several homeschool cooperatives, I plan to
teach a technical writing class to some high school students. Considering
the audience, I really don't want a dry, boring textbook. I am looking for a
book that will reach the minds of teens, teach them how to write, yet more
importantly, give them a conceptual view of the technical writing field,
including some anecdotal highlights from a writer's perspective. I'm

English in Plain English" by Patricia T. O'Conner, which is a great little
Does anyone have any suggestions for this type of book, perhaps an old
favorite? I am reviewing Technical Writing for Dummies and The Complete
Idiot's Guide to Technical Writing, but thought there might be something
else. I need something that is fairly easy to obtain at a local bookstore.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
