This material may not be published, reproduced, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without permission.The primary focus here is on “writing to learn” assignments, which leverage writing to improve students’ conceptual understanding of technical concepts.Writing exercises can be used in engineering courses to promote the deeper learning of technical material and build students’ writing skills.You will need to locate the author’s name of any web site information and be able to explain how you know they are an expert in the particular field.As with any English assignment, you will lose points if the final paper is late.Additionally, the teaching of writing is an entire discipline of study with its own theories and practices that may not be accessible to engineering educators.The assessment of student writing in engineering courses can vary between simpler analytic rubrics to more complex, holistic rubrics.When “writing-to-learn” is the primary objective of your assignment, a rubric is recommended that focuses more on the technical merit of the student’s content and less on the grammar and mechanics.Additionally, simpler rubrics have the advantage of being quick and easy to apply, which can be necessary for large lecture classes.Modern Language Association style (MLA) is designated for specifying the requirements for academic writing, such as formatting and use of English.Although many research papers are created according to the MLA style, this style usually does not provide for a cover page.
