They Say/I Say Five (What are “voice markers” and how does identifying them help us as communicators? Are “voice markers” the same things as “signal phrases”?) Western Oregon University: Voice Markers Includes egs in APA and MLA styles Corbett Lecture, Arrangement & Metadiscourse Nordquist on Metadiscourse Richard Nordquist, Refutation They Say/I Say Six (Which of the Five Parts of Discourse from classical rhetoric does this call to mind ? How can “planting a naysayer” improve your credibility? What are some of the potential problems with failing to include a naysayer?) They Say/I Say Seven (Why should you consider the questions “So what?” and “Who cares?”) How will you address the critical question of why your argument matters? How do you “offer a clear claim” in your writing, and how do your frame your claim in response to what someone else has said? Writing Advice: Purdue Owl: Point of View and Voice Purdue Owl: Tone in Business Writing UNC Chapel Hill OWL Passive Voice Tip from Purdue Owl: Point of View and Voice When writing in APA Style, you can use the first person point of view when discussing your research steps ("I studied ...") and when referring to yourself and your co-authors ("We examined the literature ..."). Use first person to discuss research steps rather than anthropomorphising the work. For example, a study cannot "control" or "interpret"; you and your co-authors, however, can. In general, you should foreground the research and not the researchers ("The results indicate ... "). Avoid using the editorial "we"; if you use "we" in your writing, be sure that "we" refers to you and your fellow researchers. It is a common misconception that foregrounding the research requires using the passive voice ("Experiments have been conducted ..."). This is inaccurate. Rather, you would use pronouns in place of "experiments" ("We conducted experiments ..."). APA Style encourages using the active voice ("We interpreted the results ..."). The active voice is particularly important in experimental reports, where the subject performing the action should be clearly identified (e.g. "We interviewed ..." vs. "The participants responded ..."). Teaching Tolerance: Introduction to Refutation Discussion 7.1 refutation exercise Select one of the sources from your "Expert Interview and Literature Review" that represents an "opposing view" and follow the four-step template in "Teaching Tolerance: Introduction to Refutation," writing one or two sentences to address each step. The guide may be found here: publication/civil- discourse- classroom/introduction- refutation Discussion Board 7.2 : Read “Day 4 Find the story” in Matthew Stibbe’s 30 Days to Better Business Writing and “Day 9: Write like a human being.” Stibbe encourages us to write conversationally, picture a human reader, interview yourself, use your sense of humor, embrace the exclamation mark, use everyday metaphors, include a sense of person, place or time. Would you dare accept this advice?
