      This would be a great activity for introductions.

  • One thing I do is bring in the style manuals from different local companies and show students how each company expects different things

  • Teaching Document Design, Not Formatting Requirements
  • many faculty members continue to specify detailed formatting requirements for student writing.
  • Your paper must be double-spaced, 12 point Times New Roman, with one-inch margins.
  • Such draconian formatting requirements stifle students’ creativity and cut off any critical thinking about what should be a crucial part of any writing-intensive classroom, namely visual design.
  • Students in all disciplines are more than capable of producing and analyzing visual work in amazingly rich and complex ways.
  • well-meaning and thoughtful teachers establish hard and fast formatting rules that may make their lives easier, but do a disservice to their students.
  • By making these requirements, we are telling them not to think critically—or even at all—about the visual layout of their documents.
  • We are telling them we value conformity over creativity, practicality over originality, our needs over theirs.
  • It all starts with students recognizing that design is a part of what they do when they write.
  • the rules we give our students should be negotiable, and in order for them to be negotiable, we need to talk to our students about those rules, why they exist, what the consequences of breaking or following them are, and so on.
  • Your paper should be readable and take into consideration the needs of your audience.  Most importantly, though, you should have fun and be creative with your design.
  •  
    Teachers need to allow their students more room to creatively use visual design, and at the same time, teach students to be aware. Forcing students to follow exact formatting requirements is counterproductive.

Visuals - Histories of Maps and Other Visual Books - Review - NYTimes.com - 29 views

  • not just with topography but with typography too
  • my favorite maps are those of unknown worlds
  • For instance, the Chinese, who had long been reassured by their maps that they occupied the “middle kingdom,” were “extremely exasperated,” the authors write, “when they discovered . . . that they had been relegated to the right edge of a map prepared by the Jesuits.”
