Topic Narrowing

In technical writing courses, students often take on topics that are way too large. They end up being unable to complete these textbook-size reports or write something so general that it is of no use to anyone. Some time spent narrowing the topic is the best way to fix this problem.

For an overview of topic narrowing, see the online textbook.
