If reading a document has ever left you absolutely drained, chances are it contained no subordinating structures. If you’ve ever failed to see the relevance, the writer probably failed to coordinate the ideas. These two simple structures allow our readers to identify a hierarchy of ideas in our documents and thus process information with ease. Without them, it becomes nearly impossible to make connections or come to an agreement on key issues. If you want your documents to read smoothly, if you want your readers to see your point clearly, if you want your arguments to communicate effectively, please join us in our ongoing webinar series. We’ll discuss how to identify sentence groups that require a high degree of attention and how to reduce the reader’s workload by subordinating ideas appropriately. We’ll also talk about the benefits of coordination and see how both together can improve our flow, our reader’s retention, and our document’s effectiveness. - - Objectives—At the completion of this webinar you will be able to: - - Identify sentence groups that require a high attention span. - Select the right ideas to subordinate and the logical transitions to do so. - Use coordinating structures to improve relevance and flow. - Balance subordinating and coordinating structures logically and smoothly.
