Georgia Sports Training Case Study Essay
Instructional Document: Sports Trainer
Length and Design appropriate for audience. Choose a task or an
activity that would need to be carried out on a regular basis in the industry that you plan to enter
after graduation. For your sake, the activity should be fairly simple and process-based, although
that doesn’t mean that it can’t be time-consuming. For example, cataloging inventory in a retail
business is a very time-consuming task, but it essentially involves numerous repetitions of the
same few simple steps carried out over a great number of items. Be sure to choose a
task/activity with enough steps to warrant documented instructions, but not so many that it
Once you have chosen your task/activity, identify the employee(s) who would be in charge of
carrying it out and design/compose an instructional document that teaches them how to do
so. In the context of this assignment, pretend that you (the writer of the document) are in charge
of supervising these individuals as well as others within your department, so you want them to
be able to carry the task out independently without constantly badgering you for help. Be sure to
consider what kinds of instructions your employees can reasonably be assumed to understand
and what instructions might need further explanation. Use diagrams or images for clarification
You should also be thinking about how you would distribute this document in a way that would
be readily accessible to the audience whenever they might need it, and the document that you
design should reflect best practices for this delivery method. Be aware that this may include
some kind of framing work early in the document, depending on how they will use and reference
Remember: The design of the document should be based entirely on your knowledge of the
rhetorical situation—every choice you make regarding word choice, formatting, organization,
image use, etc. should be supported by sound logic and critical thinking.
