Multi-Modal Project

It’s funny because whenever I’m in class or talk to Kim/classmates and then leave class, I feel so confident in my multi-modal project and what I’ve learned thus far (no, but seriously, this has to be one of the most enlightening English classes I’ve taken [also the only one I’ve taken but still…]). And then, I get back to my apartment and start thinking about my project, and honestly? I don’t really like it and I don’t know if I have the creativity to pull it off or I guess, make it more creative. But really, what other option do I have?

So now you’re probably like… Just say your multi-modal project already!

Okay, okay, okay. I’m THINKING of doing a subset of spoken word pieces that kind of connect all of our readings and conversations together. Kim talked to me about “Ignite Talks” and more about blackout poetry and I have to say I’m really interested in all of that. I would take quotes from different pieces and add in my own analysis to create a bunch of small spoken word pieces and then potentially, I would “perform” them in video format. This idea really makes me nervous and I’m not entirely sure I like it, but I don’t know what else I could do. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m not creative (which is partially true) or because I’m not used to this much freedom in an assignment?

I was also thinking I could make kind of a family tree for all the authors and have their main quotes/points on there that show how all these readings are linked. We do similar projects in my multi-cultural sorority where we show the lineage of sisters, but I could do that with the authors we’ve read? I think I may like this idea better actually. I can see it in my head more, but I think the other one is more “multi-modal.” I don’t know. Help!

    You have some pretty good ideas! I feel like the last one would probably be a super cool idea! And you can also do any of these in video forms. You can easily find templates and things to make this whole thing possible and then hey, if you need any help for whatever idea you pick then I could probably lend a helping hand! I’m always down to help a fellow friend out (:

    I love both of these ideas, although I think it would be really fun to pull off the spoken word choice. You could video yourself or we could video in class and upload it!
