class 9  focus text-context

repping tropes group 4.13.22

  1.   Write reflection notes from class 8 experience of putting images and written text on the wall towards DI.HW crime board.  

  • Review ALL photos taken of the wall posted on a shared drive Google folder.  Review the images of the postings you made of your group, and those of the other groups.
  • From the photos and what you experienced, assess the experience:
    • What worked?  Could work better?  What was enjoyable?  What wasn’t?
    • Some takeaways?
    • How to follow-up?  For you individually, with your group, for the class as a whole?
  1.  For follow-up, each person needs to hone their focus and research the specifics of the political economy contexts, i.e. who owns, controls, profits, and the larger economic mechanisms and players that run the show.  

  • Write notes (no more than a paragraph) summarizing the meanings of the images and written text you’ve thus far assembled.   While this may be similar to what you’ve previously written, in light of what other group members have done, write something new.
  • Given what you’ve found, how do you want to sharpen your specific focus?
  • For researching the political economy context, what’s your direction?
