We worked to further develop our descriptive writing using the "Favorite Thing" writing prompt from last week. In pairs or troikas, everyone took a writing piece from someone else and tried to make an accurate drawing of the object based solely on the written description. This led everyone to see the need for enhanced details in their descriptive writing, and we'll be continuing to revise these.
Interviews:In a similar spirit, the class also began thinking about interviews and documenting information about another person. We first worked to write useful questions and discussed how to introductory questions to draw out the speaker and then follow up with more open-ended questions and follow-ups to enrich the quality of the responses.
The "Favorite Things" writings and interviews will both be in the Identity project books.
