Vagueness, Ambiguity and Clarity
In the first example the organization is not named, the type of van is not named, and the conflict going on is not named, to say the least, the entire section is very vague and does not refer or mention any one thing that is going on. The second example does not mention who, how or what was thrown out of the truck, why the truck went off the road.
The first example states "this particular case study will reflect an organization with a van that has undergoing internal conflict. It will also analyze the reason for the conflict and offer positive resolutions of this ...view middle of the document...
Being vague in the first example influences understanding because not one person that is reading it would know anything about what is going on with the organization. There is no who, what, where or how stated in any part of the example. How would anyone understand what the organization is, what van is being talked about, what the conflict is, and why religious leaders are involved. The second example says, "I was thrown from my truck as it left the road. I was found later in a ditch by a flock of wild turkeys". What it does not say is who or what is "I", how it left the road, and how did "wild turkeys" help with the finding of "I".
The relationship between critical thinking and clear writing is very important, if a person does not think critically they cannot write clearly. If a person is trying to write clearly, they must have all the information and facts on the subject they are going to write about, they must always have both sides of the story for any writing that is being done. Without it the writer is more likely to have a biased opinion on the subject matter. The writer should always state who, what, where, why and how when writing about something. If these are not covered then the person reading the writing could not comprehend the entire piece and would not be able to have a clear understanding of what the writer is trying to get across to them.
