For this assignment individual students will use Adobe InDesign to generate popular science articles based on credible scientific sources. Students will engage in researching, summarizing, paraphrasing, and citing information as well as organizing and designing content visually. Students will have to consider issues of credibility and comprehension, as their articles should be accessible, accurate, and interesting to specialists and non-specialists alike. The end goal is to achieve a better understanding of scientific discourses and genres.
