The following are completed assignments from my Technical Writing class at the University of Northwestern – St. Paul.
My class was assigned to create a short document or video of consumer instructions (300-700 words long) for a specific web-based application, consumer product etc. I chose to write instructions on how to create a WordPress account as well as how to set up a website/blog. My intended audience were older adults (age 45+) who are unfamiliar with WordPress and are interested in learning how to create their own website. I used WordPress.com, made a new account, and took screenshots with my computer in order to capture the steps of this process for my document.

One of my first assignments for Technical Writing was to write a technical description of a product. We were given three choices, a mechanical pencil, a car tire, or sunglasses. I chose the mechanical pencil.
