Why do we think coffee smells so good? Why are Mexico City’s palm trees dying? These are examples of the questions that writer and editor Julieta García asks herself. In this online course, she teaches you to reflect on your thoughts and concerns through writing.
Familiarize yourself with the empirical method, looking for data and investigating reliable sources to compose informative texts that are both structured and captivating. Discover the tools you need to understand, explain, and narrate anything that inspires you.
Begin by getting to know Julieta García. She talks about herself, the works that have influenced her, and how she learned to gain the necessary knowledge to write about things that catch her attention. She also gives an in-depth explanation of the course and what you learn.
Then start researching something you’re passionate about so that you can explain it to others. Your teacher shows you how to effectively find the information you’re looking for.
Now it’s time to ground your hypothesis and collect the initial resources to tell the story. Julieta teaches you how to link seemingly unconnected information and organize your data.
Next, review the different research processes and see some examples, before putting it all into practice. To wrap up the course, turn your attention to new ideas that crop up during your investigation, so you can come back and analyze them later down the line.
