Logic patterns v2

  1. 1. “Contrastive Rhetoric is the Study of How a Person’s First Language and Culture Influence His or Her Writing In a Second Language” * *Wikipedia (2010)
  2. 2. In Canada we usually introduce the main or most important idea first. Next comes the supporting ideas or ideas of much less importance.
  3. 3. In some other cultures they give one idea, jump to another, then the next, and so on and end up at the most important idea last.
  4. 4. Yet another culture gives many ideas one after another which seem unrelated. In the middle of all these ideas is the main idea.
  5. 5. ? ? ? To Canadians, information given following the patterns in the previous two examples is very confusing!
  6. 6. The following slide contains an example of the way in which Canadians commonly like to give and receive information.
  7. 7. “In any organization, there should be an attempt to train all personnel in basic creative thinking skills. This can be done most easily by providing training about the techniques of alternative thinking. By providing techniques, we are providing people with something to do. Just telling people to be creative is not enough – it helps them to have an activity to practice their skills”
