Step 1 Research the writing styles.
Using course materials and in the Internet, research three or more articles that exhibit different writing styles. Use the following to guide your research:
- Identify articles that represent the three different disciplines: Humanities, Social Sciences, Applied and Natural Science.
- How does the author’s writing style shift depending on their subject matter and audience?
Step 2 Post a response to the discussion board.
Respond to the following questions and, if it’s relevant, include your own personal experience:
Q1 – Compare and contrast the three disciplines. Are they interested in the same topics? Do they value the same types of evidence?
Q2 – Are the articles organized in similar ways? Are there any distinctions in the length or complexity of sentences and paragraphs?
Q3 – Do the articles use images, charts, graphs, and other visual elements?
