10.4 Sensitizing for obstacles
Unit 10.4 intends to sensitize learners for obstacles in writing objectively and critically by showing the distinction between descriptive and prescriptive language.
STEP 1: “Presentation Unit 10.4_Description vs. Prescription”
- Before learners start the presentation, think about the meaning of the words “Description” and “Prescription” and write down a small definition (one sentence each).
- Start with the presentation and compare your definition with the explanation of the two words on slide 2.
- Continue with the rest of the presentation, keeping in mind that language makes all the difference between being objective vs. subjective, therefore being the cornerstone to a critical social report.
STEP 2: Reflection on units’ 10.3 writing assignment
- Reflect on the results from the writing assignment in Unit 10.3 and try to identify descriptive and prescriptive formulations in the passages you have written.
