The waterfall card offers a great opportunity to broach any topic that looks simple, but grows increasingly complex as we study it. Because immigration has caused such an uproar nation wide in the last month, I thought a waterfall card on immigration might be a good idea. Remember that I am offering here a model. Copy it, if you're comfortable with that. But keep in mind that you will be more effective at introducing governance and illocutionary discourse in your community and neighborhood when you include some of yourself in the creative effort. Don't be afraid to go off on your own. Make changes. There is no right or wrong to the gifts of voice we offer friends, neighbors, strangers.
- How do you make the card?
The "how to" is always easier than the creativity. In this case it looks complex, but is actually pretty simple once you catch on.
