EN Day_2 : Paraphrasing and Restructuring

Today I reviewed paraphrasing and also did restructuring which I named.

Rebecca’s video is always good.

The structural rewriting training was done. The method is as follows:
1. Copy the original phrases.
2. Pick up the structure to consider.
3. Write down with the bullet way as much as possible.

Resilence has become a common word in aiming to articulate how communities should deal with a disaster. Both resilence and community are contested through multiple definitions. Different understandings are explored through four artificial and overlapping hazard categories:
1) natural (or environmental) hazards; 2) technological hazards; 3)violent social crisis such as terrorism and violent crime; and 4) nonviolent social crisis. (B.Wisner, 2015, Community Resilience to Disasters:354)

The most encompassing and successful approaches for community resilience to disaster involve the full participation of all community members in having access to resources and choices for helping themselves deal with day-to-day and longer-term challenges.

Full participation of all community members in having access to resources and choices for helping themselves to cope with the short and longer-term challenges is the key to community resilience.
