Guidelines of Content Organization

According to Chapter Seventeen of our textbook, there are six guidelines/principles of content organization:

  1. Follow pre-established document structures.
  2. Anticipate reader questions and needs.
  3. Arrange information from general to specific and from familiar to new.
  4. Apply conventional patterns of organization: match structure to meaning.
  5. Group related material.
  6. Use parallel structure for parallel sections.
