Instructions: We will not necessarily read the chapters in the textbook in chronological order. We will start with Chapter 3 and Memo Formatting. Most of your assignments for this class will need to be done in Memo format. Please
watch a short video on Technical Writing. Here is the link to the video on YouTube:

For this assignment you will watch the videos and read chapter 3. You will also read pages 386-388 that explain Memo formatting and give examples of how to do that format.
After watching the video and reading chapter 3, type a 400 to 500 word Memo to me (size 12, Times New Roman) responding to specific information found in the Videos AND Chapter 3 (your heading is not included in the word count of your memo). Pick at least one detail that you found interesting or helpful. Feel free to mention any information you found confusing or that which you disagree.
I do NOT want a summary of the chapter and video; I want your thoughts/response to some of the information in the chapter AND video.
Use the Memo sample on page 387* as the model for your memo. Make your memo look
just like this sample in regard to appearance and usage of spacing (double/single), tabs, punctuation, headings, bold, italics, underlining, categories listed, purpose etc.
For any of these response essays when you are referring to specific information from the book and video, make sure you list/cite the page number in and the book and video speaker to which you are referring.
Remember this is Technical Writing and formatting is imperative. For many of you, this is your first
into the world of technical writing. The key to technical communication is following instructions and attention to detail. Make sure you pay attention to the instructions of each assignment. Your grade will depend upon it!
* I realize in the business world, there is more than one way or style to write a memo. But in order to be fair and consistent, for this class we use the sample on page 387 in the book so that you gain experience in following this particular example, and for me to have a consistent sample to evaluate your attention to detail in following the instructions.

We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.
We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.
Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.
After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.
