Dr. Suess Technical Writing

Technical writing is exactly as it sounds. It is a type of writing involving practical, but technical details about a certain field or topic. Depending on the complexity of what one is writing about, technical writing can be a challenge, and if not done properly, a challenge to read as well.

This is a teacher resource that could be used as a set or hook to introduce technical writing. It is a fun poem that answers the question, what if Dr. Seuss did technical writing for the computer industry?
