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!
