This Seems Familiar

Erin Ackerman explains in the passage "Analyze This" that us humans are very complicated and that any information that we have on each other should be partial because we are all very different. Some of us do things different and with that, it allows us to see things in different views which makes us behave different to one another. Ackerman also explains that good writing requires that the writer first demonstrate about all possible views on the subject. Good writing should start with what others say and then with what you would say as a result of the claim or subject. Many great tips are given in this passage on ways to write in social sciences because as a generation that is extremely into social networkings and things, we should now how to understand and help understand our readers. Another great tip is that our introduction should state something that will help the reader understand whats next to come.
This article reminds me of what we do in english comp 2. We are told to have counter arguments and write essays that should be an argument. We must look at all possible outcomes and statements that a reader would think like, what if this were to happen? Reading this passage seems very familiar to what we do in class. This helps the reader stay interested as well as understand us better. Social sciences will always be difficult to comprehend but, writing like this surely helps make it less difficult.
