Write an article aimed at a high school-age audience. The article must be clearly grounded in the field of comparative cognition and culture.
Write an article that would be engaging to the general public as if you were a science writer working for The Conversation, The Atlantic or National Geographic. The article might be focused on one specific recent (eg. published in the last 5 years) journal paper or perhaps two (eg. that support the same conclusion or contrast in some way), or might be focused on a general pertinent topic and use recent journal papers to explain/investigate it.
You should explain why the new finding(s)/topic is/are important and place it in a broader context of the scientific literature (with hyperlinks to other journal articles) and societal interests/current affairs.
Include 1-3 relevant photos/diagrams/figures and you may invent/use quotes (to be found in press releases, on Twitter etc.) from scientists.
The article should address a topic pertinent to comparative cognition and culture. The writer’s opinion should be articulately made with excellent validation of their argument. The article should be entirely scientifically accurate in its portrayal of information (and is careful regarding anthropomorphism/anthropocentrism etc .) and appropriately referenced. The top line of the article should be clear, engaging and thought-provoking, with a catchy title. There should be a societal hook that is appropriate, timely and well conveyed. The writing style should be engaging but accurate, jargon-free, cliché free, and well structured. The article should make good use of visuals and/or interview quotes.
I’ve included relevant sources for topic materials.
