Let's see, I'm giving a course on tech writing, right? And I'm trying to
choose what to include in this course, right? And it's about tech writing,

Well, I guess I'd teach programming, because it's my general policy to
always teach something completely different than what the course title
suggests. I think we owe it to our students, if the course is about "Music
of the Rococo Age", to include a lot about thermodynamics; if the course is
titled "Audio Engineering", to include a lot about corporation finance; and
so on. Cuz, you know, everything is related and all.

Um, am I just misunderstanding the question?
