halfing like atoms and writing styles searches turns into constructive possibilities to increase legibility for kids and what they are teaching at one university

…every time a baby is born it knows everything it needs to know in half the time of those, who birth him. Every subsequent baby born thereafter will follow in the same respect. Then the need to learn will evolve into the need…

we are atoms. The earth is the largest of its kind. It pushes outwards birthing atoms that recycle; forming larger bonds with other atoms. Until a shape is formed they maintain a cylindrical outline. They push together doubling. One invisible and one visible. They can be seen but are still transparent. Are these two atoms representing the two sexes. Two sexes can become one. Asexual. They reproduce as they die. They are just pushing together creating another advancement in human physical form. It would eliminate sex in our terms of understanding sex (2006). Sex is something you choose to do. But it is more about what you…

Note: sometimes I write down my train of thoughts. Come to think of it; ok I just began seaching for writing styles and was faced with the intial search results and was met with a patterned pencil background with illegible text on top of it. Can kids really read this? The pencils are cute and a symbol to writing… but more associated with math I suppose. A fountain pen or feather could be a more appropriate historic writing instrument to pattern. Removing the pattern of pencils from behind any body text and subheads would greatly help students and adults alike to read the Writing Styles you have written about. The pencils appear to be slightly moving when one stares unable to read for a long enough time. A simple fix could be to simply change your background color to white (fff). The top pencil border is effective :). Changing your background colour to a solid contrasting color will increase legibility across the page. Also just increasing the leading in between the outgoing links (in the bottom links section) would allow people to preoperly scan them more easily. People tend to read English written words by scanning the tops of the letters. 😉 Hang in there; there is one more. Align all text to the left within their respective areas or enclosures – please?

OK, I like your homepage and this page. Although your alphabetized list on the bottom could be better read using left alignment over central alignment, as you did in your subject index. Never be afraid to make people scroll or increase the font size on your website especially when you are displaying lists. Straight vertical lines of text flush left / ragged right> with appropriate subheadings aligned left would make for a better read. I’m assuming the majority of your readership is kids, teachers and parents (in order of usage). Don’t forget that kids are intuitive. They will discover or already understand (know) how to increase text size and if they don’t they might ask someone or worst of all click away from your site :(

Ok… this ends my discovery into writing styles. I am still unceratin as to where my style would be placed. And come to think of it… it DOES not matter. I already am writing and will evolve organically as I go.

You know what though! This university has a suggested Blog Reading List as part of their Blog and Wikis curicullum. Fascinating!

Here is a take on wiki’s from J. Theroux, one of the participants (students). She begins with:

Well, here is my take on the whole Wiki thing thus far:

I’ll admit, when I first heard the term “wiki”, I thought it referred to a creature on Star Wars. Then I discovered Wikipedia, and wikis became a whole new word for me. From that site, I cam e to understand them as something one could add to, though I never attempted to do so. I frequent the site then and still, but didn’t really pay much attention to the wiki medium as something I could participate in.

This also cought my eye… Unorthidox Taxidermy by Dr. Suess. I originally read this on here.

  1. Talking about writing styles and going off-topic, what about spelling …
