Assignment: How do candidates present climate change to the public?.
Can you help me understand this Writing question?
In this assignment, you will compare the online presentation of climate change material for two political candidates. These candidates must currently be competing with each other. These candidates do not need to be from the US – they can be from any country holding an election in the next 24 months.
Your assignment should include all of the following:
1) Screenshots of the two candidates’ webpages, if any, on this topic. If one of the candidates you select does not include information about climate change on their site, find information from the news or other sources on their stance on climate issues.
2) A comparison of how they frame the content of the topic. How does each candidate discuss the topic differently, and how do they relate to other topics that they care about? What aspects of climate change do they emphasize/minimize? What policies do they prefer? If they do not discuss the topic on their pages, search the web to figure out why not, and briefly describe what you find.
3) A comparison of how they present the content in a technical way. Is any aspect visual/interactive/innovative, or is it just text? Why do you think they have chosen to present it in this way?
You will need to write 400-500 words in total. Place everything in a single .pdf file for your submission.
