Writing and teaching to help you deal with climate change as part of daily life.
We should write the way we talk, with descriptions our readers can visualize. Here's how I can help.
As lawyers develop theories from evidence and doctors diagnose cases from knowing how the body works, systems analysts develop proposals from facts and process expertise.
Your faculty live on the same planet as you, so we know that 20 pages runs longer than most people read or write. It’s this seriousness and clarity, though, that strengthens policy proposals. We’ll workshop how topic sentences, characters and visual images, and conversational asides can sustain a voice through what can become a slog for readers and writers alike.
Now that you’ve described your research methods, you should feel competent to recommend a step or policy or investment. Talk about how your research leads you to this recommendation, how you need to qualify it, and how you can use technical terms or expertise to make it. For class nine, comb through your paper and flag (but do not correct, yet) language or thought patterns that come from a source. Make sure you know where to find that source and how to characterize it in your analysis.
