This paper presented the use of the dialogic communication model to teach students how to write a report introduction. In the case study presented, the students engaged in discussions and reflections regarding the contextual complexities in the writers’ and readers’ organizational environments, which helped them adapt their writing to their readers’ needs and flow of thought. The thinking process that students go through in making their writing more reader-centered using this model could be a useful springboard to help students adopt the thinking processes of professional engineers.
