Need help with my Writing question – I’m studying for my class.
I would like from you to do all the 3 things. “each one is a separate exercise.
First one: “ using visual in Document Design:
This activity asks you to analyze a sample document that uses visuals, focusing on document and visual design elements and the way the visuals are integrated into text to make an argument/point. Your work will help you design effective documents that integrate visuals.
Select one of the following sample visual reports to analyze:
Analyze the document for use of the following design elements. For each of the following elements, answer the following questions:
- Headers, footers, titles
- Headings and bulleted lists
- Labeling of visuals
- Placement and size of visuals
- References to visuals in the text
- Use of color
- Is the elements used in the report?
- How is the element used? What’s the element’s purpose?
- Is the element used effectively?
Your analysis will help you design your document and effectively integrate visuals. Upload and Submit your completed work here.
Second one: “Storyboarding to connect visuals to an argument’
This exercise allows you to practice connecting your data visualization to a specific point/purpose for a specific audience.
To complete this exercise, you should have your dataset and also should have drafted your three visualizations. You will now create a “storyboard” to visually plan how you will integrate visuals into the argument of the deliverable to create a “story” or argument.
- Describe each visual you are planning
- Describe your argument or point
- Outline your argument or point. Feel free to headings to help you outline.
- Put the visuals in the order that best makes your point
- Integrate the visuals into your outline to create a storyboard that connects planned visuals to the “story” or point you are making
Your completed storyboard should clearly describe the point you are making, and where and how the visuals fit in.
For this exercise you need the previous assignment i did to see the data and the 3 visualization i did. so i will include them in a word document.
Third one: ( Focus on this one as it is the most important exercise please)
” Draft of information design project”
- Gain a better understanding of document design and visualizations
- Write based on a specific purpose and audience
- Create appropriate visuals from numeric data
- Use visuals to support a specific point or argument
- Analyze visuals to integrate data into an argument
- Apply principles of design to create a visually appealing, readable document
This project asks you to engage with data, present data for a specific audience, and practice making effective data visualizations. The project focuses on
- the fair, accurate, and ethical use of data
- the conventions of writing with numbers and data
- how to integrate figures into a document
- how to design effective visualizations.
Audience and purpose are central to the goal of the final deliverables. As you will learn in completing this project, numbers don’t speak for themselves, and writing with data requires critical and rhetorical thought, as well as visual design skills.
In working on this project, you will engage with different types of visuals, as well as the conventions of writing with data and numbers. To achieve these goals, you will select one of the data sets listed below. After reviewing the data set you select, you will decide on a point you want to make for a specific audience using the data in your data set. You will then make decisions about which data to visualize from the larger data set and you will create three data visualizations help you make your point. Then you will write about and analyze that data in a final visual report of one page. The final visual report you create will include the three visuals you have made, and the supporting text necessary to explain the data you have visualized and make your point.
In addition to the visual report, you also will create a second deliverable. You also will compose a reflective memo that explains your choices and goals, and how the visual report deliverable achieves them.
In addition to your the textbook chapter on Visual Design, you may which to use this Periodic Table of Visualization Methods (Links to an external site.) to explore various types and uses of visuals.
Data visualizations bring a number of benefits to any professional document, even short ones:
- Though they have become extremely easy to make, people in the workplace still tend to be impressed by the extra effort and thoughtful presentation implicit in making a visualization.
- Data visualizations also help to make the work of digesting and interpreting data more efficient by displaying trends or illustrating the significance of specific information without poring over page after page of numbers.
- Because of this efficiency, visual elements are also better at communicating certain ideas more quickly than words or tabular data. Something that may take many sentences to communicate, a sudden drop in the efficiency of a process, or a surge in sales among a certain demographic, are instantly recognizable as spikes or dips along the X axis of a line graph.
This short report from the Department of Education (Links to an external site.) provides an overview of literacy and numeracy for men and women. In this online short report, the authors created two bar charts that are designed to show relationships between data and then they briefly explain the importance of the data.
In your visual report, you will create three visualizations and integrate them into your report, providing an introduction to the topic and analysis of the data you include to make a point about the topic using your data.
For this project, you will select a data set from the ones listed below and create a short informational report that includes at least three data visualizations that you create and that you feel best communicates the data you select from your data set in a form that maximizes the impact of the data to suit a specific audience and purpose.
To create your visualizations and informational report, select one of the following data sets:
Once you have selected a data set, spend some time with the data. Identify the trends that jump out at you as most significant. As you identify your audience, think about who would want to know about the data and the point you’d like to make. You will not be able to visualize or discuss all the data in your data set. Your job is to select and visualize the data that is most relevant to your audience and the point you are making.
Document 1: Visual, Informational Report
A one-page, informative, visually interesting report that makes a point about your subject using the data in your data set. This report should incorporate at three visuals that you have created along with a discussion/analysis of the data in your figures. The text in your report should
- introduce the topic and its importance
- explain the meaning of the visuals
- point to the conclusions suggested by the data.
You should think through and identify a clear audience. Your understanding of the audience informs how the data is presented, the form the visualizations take, and the point you use the data to make, as well as the overall purpose of the document.
