The Modern Approach to Teaching Business Writing

The world of business writing is undergoing dramatic change, but you won't find much information about these revolutionary changes in the typical business writing textbook. Page through these other texts, and you'll find page after page of memos and letters—the paper media that once dominated business writing.


But then look across today's business landscape, and you'll find companies communicating both internally and externally using blogs, IM, text messaging, podcasts, online video, social networks, Twitter microblogs, social bookmarking and tagging sites, wikis, and other new media.


"Learn More" is a unique feature strategically located throughout our texts, connecting students with dozens of carefully screened online media, including videos, PDFs, articles, podcasts, and PowerPoints.

This feature provides contemporary examples and valuable insights from successful professionals.


In addition, there are dozens of updated model documents, encompassing every medium that students will be expected to use on the job--from conventional printed documents--to e-mail, instant messages, webpages, blogs, podcasts, and wikis.


A complete chapter on "Crafting Messages for Electronic Media" covers e-mail, instant messaging, blogging, podcasting, and newsfeeds. Coverage of wikis is in the teamwork chapter, and writing website content is in the report writing section.


Exceptional coverage of audience psychology in Chapter 1 gives students important insights into how audiences receive, process, and respond to messages.

Expanded coverage of visual communication helps students understand the growing importance of visual media in business today.


A career planning Prologue features advice on creating employment portfolios and using this course as a way to create work samples to show potential employers. Numerous "Portfolio Builder" exercises and cases are included throughout the book.


A multitude of cases are new, including short-message cases, short and long-report cases, PowerPoint cases, employment-message cases, blogging cases, podcasting cases, and social media cases. Cases feature virtually every significant medium now used in business, including e-mail, instant messaging, text messaging, social networking, blogging, webpages, voice mail, and podcasting as well as letters, memos, and reports.

Which Business Communication Textbooks Do English Instructors Prefer?

I'm here to explain why English instructors prefer the texts of one author team over all other texts in the field.


The texts emphasize the process and product by describing three easy-to-follow steps for planning, writing, and completing messages with abundant sample documents that provide students with tangible results.


The process is uniformly applied throughout the book and emphasizes the parts of the process that differ for each message form. Sample documents are often accompanied by a customized three-step graphic that shows students exactly how the process was used for each document—and unlike several other texts on the market that introduce a structured writing process and then never use it again—this process is repeated and reinforced with multiple document types, from electronic messages (e-mail, instant messaging, text messaging, blogging, and podcasting) to memos to résumés.


The texts emphasis on audience focus helps students create more meaningful messages, enhance their own credibility, and reduce the chances of ethical complications.


The coverage on finding, evaluating, and processing information includes up-to-date advice on online research and strategies students can use in all their assignments (not just reports).


The chapters on business reports explain in detail the process for planning, writing, and completing papers that are based on research and that require documentation.


In addition to specific ethical questions, this text gives students the means to anticipate and analyze the ethical dilemmas they will face throughout a lifetime of communicating on the job.


This texts offers crucial tips on avoiding cultural bias in language.


Business leaders are increasingly concerned about the etiquette shortcomings of today's new hires, a situation this book addresses thoroughly, in areas such as personal appearance, teamwork, face-to-face interaction, written correspondence, research (such as respecting the privacy of interview subjects), instant messaging and e-mail, telephone interactions, and job search and interviewing.
