Slide1

Lasar’s U2 a great

writer

With 8 EZ rules!

Slide2

Writing is the most powerful form of multimedia ever invented

Words + your

God; cannibalism; Paris Hilton; Iraq; love; Snoop Doggy Dog; Shakespeare; mother; wuddever . . .

Slide3

Writing is the most powerful multimedia tool ever invented

“Mrs. Daughtry walked into the living room. There on the sofa sat young Alvin the accountant, with a confident expression on his face.”

Words + your

Slide4

Writing is the most powerful multimedia tool ever invented

“Mrs. Daughtry walked into the living room. There on the sofa sat young Lars the pool boy, with a confident expression on his face.”

Words + your

Slide5

1. Don’t overuse the evil verb: iswasarewere

“is” “was” “are” “were”Activity, not existence, defines lifeMake your subjects do things

Slide6

Marvin Gaye: “I heard it through the grape vine.”Your typical UCSC student: “It was heard by me through the grape vine.”

Slide7

Passive: “Armand Anderson was a doctor who lived in Colorado. He was married to a woman whose father was a Ute trader.”Active: “Doctor Armand Anderson practiced medicine in Colorado. He married the daughter of a Ute trader.”

Isarewaswere verbs take over your sentence and make it dull.

Slide8

People use passive verbs to avoid responsibility.

Oops, looks like your iPhone was lost.Sorry, but I lost your iPhone.Slavery was introduced in 1623 . . . [by who?]The village was removed in 1945 . . . [by who?]Sterilization was made mandatory in 1952 [by who?]

. . . by zombies?

Slide9

2. Use simpler words

Why use “interrelated” or “interconnected” when you can use “related” or “connected”?

Can you tell the difference between a “diametrical opposite” and an “opposite”?

There is no such word as “irregardless.”

Slide10

2. Use simpler words

Metropolis

City

Utilize

Use

Convivial

Cheerful

Cupidity

Protean

 Insouciant

Slide11

3. Use shorter sentences

If your sentence runs on for more than three lines the chances are that it is too long, at least that’s what I think about this aspect of writing and I’ve been doing it for a while, trust me on this, no, really.

Slide12

4. Do not use clichés

“The café

was a mecca

for local artists and intellectuals.”

“It was

the mother

of all party battles.”

“Having

spent his political capital

, Grover Cleveland would now have to

pay the electoral piper

.”

“Descartes began to

think outside the box

.”

Slide13

4b. News clichés

Game changer

Inside the beltway

Main Street versus Wall Street

He won a Hail Mary pass

She’s a maverick

Flip flop

Smear campaign

Wreaking havoc with our security

Playing political football with our future

Running neck and neck

The voters are tired of all the mud slinging

Let the healing begin

Slide14

5. Avoid jargon

ProblematizeTextBinary oppositionDeconstructDiscursiveSubjectivitiesInterventionNeoliberalismIntersectionality

“I submit this intervention to problematize the subjectivities inherent in this text, paradigmatic of the contemporary discourse on global warming.”

Slide15

5b. Bu$ine$$ jargon

SynergyMonetizeParadigmDisruptiveGame changer

Slide16

6. Start your essay with an interesting first sentence

No: “The economy affects our lives on a daily basis.”

Yes: “Until recently economists assumed the Crash of 1929 caused the Great Depression, but now they question that theory.”

Tell your reader something that they do not know in the first sentence

Slide17

7. Let your reader know what you will do on the first page of your essay

“This

essay will explore several

New York Times

articles linking typing work with wome

n

. Drawing on the scholarship of technology historians, it concludes that the typewriter did not encourage a diverse workplace. On the contrary, the machine became associated with extreme gender segmentation in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era office.”

Slide18

Your term paper

An introductory paragraph

A

description of your articles

Putting your articles in context via secondary sources

A conclusion that recapitulates your findings and

reiterates

your main ideas

Slide19

Use your own words

Don’t overuse text blocks

Don’t overuse quotes

Use your own words

Use quotes for emphasis and drama

Slide20

Great ways to get a C in this paper

it in late

Slide21

Slide22
