Business Correspondence

One thing many TPC courses have in common is their focus on teaching specific genres of writing. The business correspondence or professional document series assignment aims to accomplish this goal by presenting students with a problem-based scenario, one that can be solved with well-crafted documents attuned to the rhetorical exigency or problem, audience needs, and genre constraints. By asking students to choose between a letter, email, or memo, they have to think through the strengths and limitations of each document type in the given situation instead of simply learning how to write these genres through rote memorization.
