Designing Texts: Teaching Visual Communication

Baywood Publishing Company 'I applaud the editors for putting together this impressive book. It ought to be required reading for every new instructor of first-year composition as well as technical communication. The coverage of theory here is lucid, the teaching advice immensely practical, and the examples copious and pertinent across multiple disciplines. Reading this collection is like joining a virtual conference on visual communication where experienced and articulate scholars in the field have gathered, the keynote speaker is Stephen Bernhardt, and every presentation is genuinely edifying.' —Sam Dragga, Professor of Technical Communication and Rhetoric, Chair, Department of English, Texas Tech University
