Today we talked about the value of visuals when writing about science. Sometimes great visuals make your point for you — for example, in the form of an infographic (here’s a great one by Rachel Tsunemoto on “Why We Buy”).
Other times visuals may just break up text and add an appealing element to your writing. Images can draw people into your piece or help them visualize what you’re writing about.
We discussed the importance of giving attribution for others’ work, and shared resources for places to find images that are free to use, as well as ways to make our own visuals. You can find all these resources in the slides linked below.
Here are the Class 6 slides.
