    1. YES! This slide show is making the right moves. The image on slide 4 doesn't make sense without explanation though. And what do you mean by "do-good" feelings? And why does it matter? Don't we want people to want to "do good"? Do you mean patrons feel that by going to the aquarium they are doing good?

    2. Placement Persuasion

      This needs to come EARLY; your introduction should focus on this. maybe this is your first slide show after the intro.

    1. Slide 4: Where do you get your information? And what does this have to do with the built environment?

    2. Slide 2: "spread apart" and "one general area" contradict. What are you trying to say here?

    3. Where do you get your demographic info?

    1. Slide 4 here takes the discussion OFF TOPIC. This is not an argument about beluga whales or conservation; it's an argument about how the built environment affects human behavior. Slide 5, too, is off topic.

    2. The slide reading "Protect Us" doesn't make sense without some explanation. Is this one of the slides in the slide show? It can't be, right? Then where does it come from? Why do you have it here? Why does the claim "Beluga whales in human care..." matter? And most importantly, what does it have to do with the built environment?????

    3. Is the Beluga Whale exhibit typical of displays throughout the Aquarium? Why are you focusing on this particular display? Could you use a digital drawing tool to "point" to the part of the image you're talking about? It's difficult to see or tell what is digital in the image.

    4. Explaining The Claim

      If I'm Dr. Tennenbaum from NYU, I have no idea what this "title" means. Who is your audience? What is your purpose with this text?

    1. Introduction

      This is incomplete, right? There's no mention of your thesis or writing to tie this history into your thesis. And there's no introduction to "built environments." I expected more slides...

    1. It would take nothing short of a miracle which I do not see happening  anytime soon.

      It's never a good idea, I think, to end with "it's a lost cause." if things aren't likely to change, then why are you writing this? Write this project as though you WANT change to happen. Who could make it happen? Write to that person/people. This imagination for a specific audience and a real/specific purpose might help you focus the project and get you full credit.

    2. If more people chose to walk and ride the bus rather than drive, than the overall health of those that use Memorial drive would improve.

      This conclusion is likely going to get stronger if you make the case for Memorial Drive being typical of many urban thoroughfares that could be beneficial if design to encourage more pedestrian traffic.

    1. es involving the sidewalk

      What are the sidewalks like along Memorial. You really need to go there; do a thick description of the space.

    2. Memorial drive did not always have four lanes, it used to be a a two lane street but as the city population increases, so will the demand for cars on the street. T

      This is more like it. Memorial Drive needs to be in the claim you're developing. Move it to the first sentence of all your sections; this might help.

    3. d advertisements ar

      What kind of advertising happens along Memorial Drive? This project simply lacks focus. It makes the right moves, just not substantially in terms of meaning.

    1. Pedestrians aspire to be car owners

      Nothing here seems to support the idea that the design of Memorial drive (the stretch you're observing) discourages pedestrian culture.

      Instead: How do urban designers design for pedestrian traffic? How does Memorial drive enact these designs or not?

    1. This repeated stimulus combined with human nature also has an integral role as to how Memorial drive affects the pedestrians in the space.

      Hmmm. What does increased population, increased car use, dealerships, have to do with a "coersion" away from the pedestrian. This work seems to have veered off track.

      Is the area pedestrian friendly?

    2. ng to statista. T

      Nice use of affordance: linking.

    3. so why is the statistical evidence not able to be visually seen?

      What do you mean? You mean more people are living in the area, but you don't see those people along the streets? Along memorial? Maybe these people aren't moving into the area you're focusing on...

    4. I feel as though the built environment of Memorial drive coerces would be pedestrians into not being pedestrians anymore

      Great claim, but what happens when you take out the "I feel"? Does the claim become more forceful? valuable? impactful? (in terms of objectivity, the perception of)

    1. History behind the street

      Okay, so as discussed you need a title that reflects the focus of your thesis and research. At this point I don't even know what street you're talking about. I mean... do you mean "the street" as in like "mean streets"? Like, he's so "street"? (Do people say that?)

    1. Uncategorized

      Don't forget the metadata

    2. Those conversations will continue and I am excited about how we use the land that is now Turner Field, to be a tremendous asset for our residents, our city, and our region for years to come.” said Kisam Reed.

      Why should we believe Reed? What evidence is there that investment is happening/going to happen? And what evidence is there that the invenstment will be good for the people of the neighborhood? Just because Reed says so doesn't make it so.

    3. Being a neighbor to Turner field it also brought a lot of clogged-roads, detours and crowd inconvenience says Terry Shropshire in ” So What Happens To The Summerhill Neighborhood After The Braves Leave?”

      Who is Terry Shropshire? and why should we listen to him? Is there any evidence to support that claim?

    4. Summerhill was surrounded by all the merchants and the people who used their land for parking which brought a lot of money to the community.

      Like what merchants? What kind of parking? What kind of money? This is confusing because you begin mid 19th century with the Civil War and then all of a sudden you're talking about Turner Field.... That's like over a hundred years....

    1. the detours will follow and the parking lots will be full but as the mayor Kasim Reed said that they are looking for a better future.

      Maybe wait to compose the conclusion until after you've done more research. This point of view doesn't seem to take into consideration all of the controversies. Consider this question: Why should your reader care about the thesis? What's important about your thesis?

    1. Protest Politics Expand child menu Video Interview: Hunter MacConnell (GSU Student and Political Activist)

      I suggest giving a "B" part to this title so we know what the project is... Something like this: "Protest Politics: An analysis of the built environment of the Georgia State Capitol building as protest facilitator/obstructor" Or something like that...

    1. As I sat and observed

      This very personal tone is compelling and can be a part of an academic effort, for sure. But in order for it to work, not only do you need to include the great details of your personal experience researching the space, you need to include outside sources. Who has studied the demographics of visitors to the mall?

      This resource is a professional example of what you're trying to do with your site:


    1. district is very popular today

      This contradicts the question at the end of your introduction. Why?

    2. By the 1980’s, The Peachtree Center was known as a place for hotel conventions considering the many hotels they have there. Many people claimed that the Peachtree Center is “disorienting, killed downtown street-life, and disregarded the existing urban context”

      Where is all of this information coming from? Cit your sources!!!

    3. Lee Coursey – The Skywalk

      Is this part of the mall? I'm not sure. This section might be better purposed as a thick description of the mall itself and a bit of the history of how it came to be.

    4. The City

      This project isn't about the city, right? It's about the specific mall?

    5. Atlanta was discovered in 1836 as it was a city apart of the Western and Atlantic railroad line. In 1839 homes and stores were starting to be built there. Atlanta immediately became a pretty popular railroad city in the South. During the Civil War, Atlanta became the target of a major Union campaign, an din 1864 the city of Atlanta was set on fire ruining the city’s assets and buildings. Not shortly after the war the population grew rapidly, where as manufacturing did also. Atlanta was a hub for Civil Rights Movement.

      Unless this very general, wikipedia-like, gloss over ATL is relevant to your thesis, take it out. I suggest starting with the image and then "Peachtree Center was created..."

      Although... is a mall really created? That word seems a bit off... What do you think?

    1. So Why are there not many returning guests and customers to the Peachtree Center?

      So nothing yet in this introduction suggests that people don't go to Peachtree Center. In fact we don't know what Peachtree Center is. Is it a mall? If so, where? Is it having problems? Are malls in general in Atlanta having problems? Are malls nation-wide having problems? How does Atl and Peachtree Center in particular compare?

      And what does this have to do with the DESIGN, the built environment, of the mall itself?

      Fill in these questions with researched responses and you'll have a nicely substantial introduction!

    2. When you think about Atlanta one thing that comes to mind is what can I do and I do not know about you but one of the first things I think about is shopping

      This is a very personal and personable voice, which is good I think. It's engaging. But if you're going to speak from your own experience, it makes sense to tell us a little more about you. Are you typical? Do many people who move to Atlanta or visit Atlanta do so to go shopping? If so, we need those numbers.

    3. photo taken by Pam Calvert

      What is the title of the photo? Is this the text you'll link to the original?

    4. (2015)

      Also incomplete parenthetical citation. Do you see what's missing?

    5. Atlanta can get 42 million visitors a year (2012)

      This in-text citation is missing something. If your source doesn't have an author's name, then in the parentheses, you need to include the title of the document (or a phrase from that title, if it's really long.)

    6. Introduction : Built

      Try having a "main page" for your project, identifiable via the title of your argument. Remember: your audience isn't me, so "built environment analysis" doesn't really work. Having a main page, under which you can subjugate other pages in your argument (by making submenus), enables you to organize your work in a way that guides your readers through your argument. As is, "history of the city" reads as though it's a separate text from "introduction." it isn't, right?

    1. Considering all of the division in the city we call Atlanta, the guiding question is if the National Center for Civil and Human Rights ameliorates racial division?

      You mean the DESIGN of the museum?

    2. Travel time and distance play a role in the type of treatment received.

      How does this impact visitors of the NCfCHR? Who can get there? Who can't? why? HOw does this support your argument that this museum is really a museum for white people, not for all people?

    3. Despite segregation ending in

      Without citing your sources and quoting sources when the words/ideas aren't yours, this falls into pits of plagiarism.

      Essentially your entire argument seems to be here, in this page somewhere. But without clear claims, evidence explanation, and considerations of other pov's, this isn't convincing yet.

    1. The city of Atlanta is a place that welcomes everyone.

      Maybe answer the question: Does Atlanta's design meet its mission goals? Always? sometimes?

    1. Since the majority of the people who use Memorial drive are a part of the working class, they have money that can readily be spent on goods and services. With that being said, I strongly feel that Memorial drive, as one entity, reduces the amount of pedestrians that use the street.

      The connection here isn't clear. There is much missing in this ... intro? What about race? age? are other demographics important? What kind of places lie along this route? Why do pedestrians matter? What does that have to do with working class people?

    2. that is being observed

      By whom? why?

    3. Memorial drive has a rather deep history dating back to when Zachary Taylor and Millard Fillmore were the presidents of the United States. Memorial drive was first called Fair street back in 1850 and was one of the many sites where  the historical battle of Atlanta took place.

      Is this history relevant to your thesis? How? It seems unrelated and not so useful. Do you find it interesting?

    1. This is a taste of what some parts of the building sound like. People talking and recordings of previous events educating us of the past.

      AWESOME sound embed!!! This really works to create an ambiance.

      The problem is I have no idea why you're talking about layout and design. There's no thesis yet and layout and design of the museum doesn't seem to have anything to do with why people should go to the museum.

    2. The trip to the Center for Civil and Human Rights is a trip that people need to take to be re-inspired to make a difference in the world today. Many people fought and died for the rights we now have today and the center reminds us all of the struggles we went through to get there as brothers and sisters of the human race. The trip to the museum is something everyone should do.

      Okay.... Perhaps the conclusion of this work might call for people to go to the museum, but not here. This can't be an advertisement for the museum. Instead, the focus should be about the design of the museum.

    3. The center reflects on the past to ignite a spark to change or inspire the future to make the world a better place.

      Hmmmm... This sounds a bit cliche. What is the museum's mission? Seems like this is a good place for that info.

    4. the visitors

      Who goes there? Whare are its visitors, mainly? (source?)

    5. civil rights

      Only in Atlanta? Why is this museum here and not in D.C.?

    6. s it took t

      It's over? Why the past tense here?

      Title of post?

    2. http://www.nationalhomeless.org/publications/crimreport/meanestcities.html

      How about include links too?

    3. Work Cited: Reference

      The images list is very difficult to make sense of. Rethink the spacing of information here. The WC list itself is much more readable/manageable.

    1. Conclusion

      Try "Conclusions" instead... How does making this change shift meaning/thinking?

    2. Origin’s of Hurt park and it’s surrounding laws and values.

      I think these synopses here in the table of contents work really nicely! Include them with all chapters. You can leave off the periods if they're sentence fragments.

    3. https://www.flickr.com/photos/yourdon/

      Nice attribution and photo choice. Can you imagine a photo here that would shift the focus to built environments instead of the homeless? Or could you use linguistic text to shift the focus to built environments?

    4. em.

      No period in a title. Also, can you make this a more academic title, one that places the focus on built environment? As is it sounds like this is a piece about the homeless. It's not, right? It's about built environments...?

    1. other key area of this law states ““Interference (or “interfere”) with ingress and egress” means standing, sitting, lying down, using personal property, or performing any other activity on public property and/or in a park, where such activity: a) materially interferes with the ingress into and egress from buildings, driveways, streets, alleys, or any other real property that has a limited number of entrances/exits, regardless of whether the property is owned by the city, a private owner or another public entity; b) reasonably appears, in light of all of the circumstances, to have the purpose of blocking ingress and egress; and c) occurs without the express written permission of the owner of the property at issue.

      How much of this is directly quoted from the source? It's difficult to tell. How can you make this clear by using the affordances of the medium?

    2. How does the Muni Code or “Law” of Atlanta set an inherent negative outlook on homeless people and their existence through the cities’ legislation and rulings?

      And what does this have to do with the built environment? How does the law SHAPE the built environment, or vice versa?

    3. Arguement

      "argument" spelling... I'd give this a more descriptive subtitle...

    1. after streetcar developer Joel Hurt

      Okay. so this section will develop answers to some of these questions: 1) Who is Joel Hurt 2) Who designed this park? 3) What was the park's original intent? 4) Where is the park in relationship to GSU, other entities (Grady will be important here, I think, as will MARTA, as you've noted in the intro) 5) What laws? (history) 6)What values? (history) 7)relationship with surrounding neighborhoods? (Who else lives in this space?)

    2. communities


    1. ered by WordPress

      How about inserting some "Next" or "Previous" types of "buttons" here so we can navigate from the end of a section? If not in the footer, then on the bottom of the page?

    2. .

      Okay. So your thesis is doing this drawing together of built environment and ignorance of the homeless. Try moving that up before the last paragraph... Maybe that will help with focus?

    3. People are known to be less generous if they feel intimidated or unpleasant by a situation, which causes an overall negative feeling about the issue itself, in this case being the increased homeless population around Hurt Park. This allows me to create a statement surround the issue itself.

      This paragraph seems here to be veering off topic. The focus is built environments, not ignorance of the homeless. If you're arguing that the built environment encourages ignorance of the homeless, bring this in earlier maybe?

    4. residents.

      This paragraph sets us up for discussion, but then closes up. Your audience asks, "How does the furniture and placement encourage homeless populations to migrate there?" But the end of the paragraph answers with an oversimplified, "...because lots of other people travel through the space and the homeless can beg." This response stereotypes the homeless needlessly and probably wrongly. Not all homeless people beg, for instance, or use the space for begging. Take some time here. Stick with the more interesting, less "obvious" discussions: how does the built environment cultivate homeless presence in the park?

    5. where many sleep, sit or socialize with the community. Why is That? When we begin to focus on the structure and layout of the area itself a few reasons appear to attract the homeless community.

      Really nice transition here. I think asking the question and then answering it sets us up nicely for the focus of your interest.

    6. ommunity. Why is That?

      What does GSU have to do with Hurt Park? The first half of the first sentence is about GSU, but the second half is about "residents of Atlanta"... Try a different focus: What is Hurt Park? Where is it? Where is it in relationship to the University and why does that matter?

    1. After watching the people interact,

      Which people? what kind of interaction? This would be a good place for a break.

    2. diverse and evolving needs

      What are those needs? In what ways are they "diverse" and "evolving"? This sentence assumes "holistic learning spaces" are "good." Here's a source that outlines a debate about "holistic education"

      Really good question. Now... what is the purpose of this post? It seems short. Underdeveloped. Is there a thesis? A focus? I'd like to see this revised to be a full post! (And maybe some sound too? See me for help if needed!)

      A paraphrase is going to answer this question (succinctly and neutrally, without interpretation): What does the quoted passage mean?

      The solid writing here is more of explanation and illustration.

    1. The sidewalk is a burgundy color with black patterns all around it.

      Where exactly are you? What day/time? Did you stick to one part of Atlantic Station? Multiple? This needs an introduction.

    2. Uncategorized

      Metadata needed! Especially since the focus on color and signs wouldn't be obvious to anyone outside of class.

    3. I am sitting in frot of the theater on a black grilled bench while having a street in-between the theater and the sidewalk that the bench is placed on

      This is a good example of a rich sentence that deserves to be worked on. See me in office hours and we'll craft it!

    1. categorized

      Why "uncategorized"? Why no tags? Are you thinking about metadata?

    2. Atlantic Station Subjective Analysis

      If I'm a researcher from Detroit interested in studying perceptions about malls in Atlanta, am I going to understand this title?

    1. With all of these observations able to be ascertained from an analysis of only the main eating space, it is easy to see that a full observation of the entire establishment would yield far more extensive results.

      Does this post need a "conclusion"? If so, maybe a statement about the limitations of the observations is warranted, but something more conclusive would be more effective. Maybe end with some questions the details perhaps evoke.

    1. Student-nature interactions during study breaks help restore attention (Felsten, 2009).

      This is not what Felsten claims!!!! Check it out yourself just in the abstract of the article! (below) The study asked students essentially about what they were attracted to. To jump to the conclusion from this study that their "attention" was "restored" by the nature they "liked" perceiving is silly!

      ["In the present study, college students, instructed to imagine themselves cognitively fatigued, rated the perceived restorativeness of indoor campus settings that varied by view of nature: some had no views of nature, some had window views of nature with built structures present, and some had views of simulated nature depicted as large nature murals. Students rated settings with views of dramatic nature murals, especially those with water, more restorative than settings with window views of real, but mundane nature with built structures present. Students rated settings that lacked views of real or simulated nature least restorative. The findings suggest that large nature murals in indoor settings used for study breaks may provide attentionally fatigued students with opportunities for restoration when views of nature are unavailable or limited in restorative potential."]


    2. Traditional campus indoor spaces, by necessity and function, provide ample opportunities for structured learning experiences that draw upon students’ direct attention. However, a student’s learning experience is not often balanced by unstructured or structured opportunities for drawing forth effortless, indirect attention that occur in human-nature interactions (Valles-Planells, et. al, 2014). Attention to a mix of different learning spaces that combine nature and interesting architecture (Orr, 2004) provide more options for regulating learning and restoration cycles. Public areas and outdoor learning environments, including nature trails and ecological study areas, lend more opportunities for community interaction and social encounters that foster a sense of belonging, whereas quiet areas provide a place for students to refresh themselves, have a temporary escape, or quiet reflection, affording an enriched and enjoyable campus life (Kenney, et al., 2005). Just as Hashimshony & Haina (2006) provide visionary and heuristic scenarios for a university of the future, we need a vision for integrating a systemic view of what these integrated campus nature networks would like in the future. In addition, there is a need to conduct more focused and nuanced research on identifying the human-nature mechanisms that lead to (among others) attentional resource benefits.

      A whole paragraph of a thesis!

    3. Such holistic landscapes can impact student learning because they provide multiple everyday opportunities for multi-sensorial, student-nature encounters– an important precursor to activating the attention restoration cycle (Speake, Edmondson, & Nawaz, 2013; Ratcliffe et al. 2013).

      But what happens to them when they don't get to hand the homeless guy who stands at the intersection of Decatur and Peachtree a mocha because it's a cold cold day and you have an extra 3 bucks? Maybe that's a different kind of deficit...?

    4. Direct attention is, therefore, an important cognitive skill required on a daily basis for students processing multiple sources of information, and working towards their academic goals at universities.

      How does this resonate (or dissonate) with the discussion of attention in chapter 8 of FYG?

    5. tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus through the influence of the mind over the body, gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigorating to the whole system

      How romantic! This kind of naturalist determinism makes me deeply suspicious. I liken it to technological determinism. Just because we have technology doesn't mean our lives are better or easier (or the other).

    6. Therefore, this paper will define nature or natural environment as the… “physical features and processes of nonhuman origin that people ordinarily can perceive, including the “living nature” of flora and fauna, together with still and running water, qualities of air and weather, and the landscapes that comprise these and show the influences of geological processes”

      It's important to define key terms. Without doing that here, anyone who has a problem with the discussion as it's been unfolding (like, maybe, me) would have trouble reading on. Now that I know how they define "nature" I can read to see if their argument holds in the context of how they define the terms.

    7. Nature can also be delineated as a particular place within a spectrum of naturalness from urban park to a pristine wilderness. Furthermore there is a subjective component to the concept (Nash, 1982: Proctor, 1998) due to the diverse opportunities and means through which one might encounter and experience nature (Hartig, et al., 2014).

      Oh Good... Those redwoods in the quad... "nature"? Can the quad be said to be "natural space"?

    8. This observation of campus design features that can help mentally fatigued individuals has been empirically demonstrated in a body of research that uses the Attention Restoration Theory
    9. By preserving and suitably integrating open spaces into the green infrastructure, universities can add value and quality to the campus environment by

      So being an "integrated community"-- a designed space that mingles students, faculty, homeless people, doctors, businessmen, city police, campus police, and others--isn't valuable as a "learning experience"? Hmmmm.... This seems strange to me.

    10. from the lures of the outside world (

      I would hardly think that being smack dab in the center of the city itself, without the "green space" walls that define typical B&M universities, feels like a "lure."

    11. Although university culture places demands on students’ cognitive abilities, campus natural open spaces have not been systematically examined for their potential in replenishing cognitive functioning for attentional fatigued students.

      Ah... exigency. This is the "gap in the research" these authors aim to address.
