Found Poem Proposal Activity
From journal 10/24:
From E's presentation re: dissertations in ABR. The activity was what form will you take for one aspect of your paper. I decided to do a found poem of my proposals as a way to prove/give support for why we use ABR. It turned out to be less of a poem and more of a ultra intense reduction to the absolute bare-bones necessities of the project but I am thankful for the realization it gave me of what really is the core of the research. This could be useful for other assignments, and other projects, too. I also like the kind of "redacted, confidential" vibe this gets now. This could seem negative, but I think it adds mystique to the proposal. I wonder what it would look like to turn the non-utilized sections blank, leaving only the words here. This would also create a different feel. Possibly something to do and reflect on. Maybe include this in final paper.
