Ethan Law’s essay “Blowing in the Wind,” describes the process by which wind turbines harness wind to create renewable energy. According to William Zinsser, renowned writer and teacher of writing, a person who can describe how something works can write anything. In this informative paper, Ethan clearly articulates the process by which wind turbines harness the wind to create energy. Even though Ethan is writing about a scientific topic, he clearly communicates his ideas to non-scientists with clear organization, analogies, and the human connection he makes with his readers. Analyze how the use of clear organization, analogies, and a human connection allows Ethan to communicate effectively with the essay’s readers.
