In order to write clearly, we must understand how we read. In this workshop, we learned how to align with readers' expectations with Judy Swan, world-famous science writer and 2013 TEDxCMU speaker.

Workshop Materials

We have compiled the example sentences discussed in this workshop into a single PDFdocument. The examples are not meant to stand alone; they contain everything needed to follow along with the workshop video (below). The document also includes Dr. Swan's handout of take-away points.
