Seven cases provide engaging, context-rich scenarios, guiding students to consider audience and purpose in a range of realistic workplace situations.

Four writing tasks in each case ask students to practice a range of skills such as analyzing, writing, revising, and designing documents.

More than fifty sample documents include proposals, reports, letters, graphics, definitions and descriptions, presentations, instructions, graphics, Web pages, blogs, and more. Digital versions are available for students to download and work with at

Concluding activities ask students to reflect on the case scenarios and to apply what they learn to other workplace situations.

A great package option. Document-Based Cases for Technical Communication is free when packaged with a Bedford/St. Martin's textbook.
