Create your own class

PLAIN offers a variety of introductory classes on plain language. You may use these materials as the basis of your own class.

Half-day presentations

Exercises and handouts

We use the same set of exercises for each of these classes, but add an extra page for the web-centric classes:

We also have a slightly different set of exercises and answers (DOC) that you can use with our slides.

Here’s a generic class evaluation form (PDF).

Other presentations

These presentations last between 30 and 60 minutes. They are brief overviews about plain language but don’t offer any in-depth instruction on how to communicate plainly. The first 2 are targeted toward managers. The third is targeted toward anyone creating or redesigning a website.
