How can reading your writing aloud help you refine and edit your work?
Reading your own work out loud lets you hear if what has been written sounds natural, i.e. whether sentences flow smoothly, whether the progression between a question and answer is coherent, and if there are gaps that need to be filled or connected. It is also a good way to get comfortable with reading your work aloud, which itself can be helpful in learning how to write in a more dynamic manner.
Subject: Information Technology
Why is it important to understand what Information Technology is and how to use it? Aren't services like Google good enough?
While search engines like Google can be a useful and even powerful tool, they are designed to highlight information based on user demand rather than accuracy. Additionally, primary sources are sometimes not directly available through these prominent search engines. Sources where data and materials are properly curated aren’t always as intuitive as popular services, so it can be helpful to know how to navigate them.
Why is it important for those studying English to read a variety of authors and genres of both literature and non-fiction, even when pursuing a career where the writing needs to be direct and simple to understand?
Reading a wide range of genres and writing styles by various authors increases the tools available to the writer to convey information to an audience, to ensure that the reader is engaged with the material and absorbing the ideas being conveyed. Understanding what makes a compelling narrative can make a newspaper or magazine article easier for more people to read, regardless of the topic or subject matter.
