MONDAYS WITH CARMEN KYNARD
WELCOME TO WEEK EIGHT OF CLASS (october 17) HTTPS://BIT.LY/TRACING-CK
- On the day that you present, you do not need to do an RR if that is what is assigned for the day. Please remember to send the shared link to your slideshow on the morning of your presentation (at the latest) with editor sharing.
- TODAY is the FINAL CALL for RRs #1-6 and Project #1 (worth 9 points in total--- 17 points if you completed your hype presentation)
- There is no class next week. In lieu of next week's class, attend any three hours of the TRACING THE STREAM symposium (that will count as class attendance). Keep this strategy in mind: you cannot simply add on class days to a syllabus for students who must work, do not have financial means, have children, face housing/transportation/etc insecurities. Give them that time back!
- Please note that your blue book must be completely full by the next time that we see one another on October 31. You will use it to take notes for the symposium sessions that you attend next week. The final design of the blue book (or one-pager) is not due until November 28--- after you have had some time away from your notes and ideas.
Welcome to Nicole's RR#3 "which is a paper collage on a 18x6 inch stretched canvas frame. The images were pulled from various magazines from the last few years, including Oprah's magazine as well as Cosmopolitan. The imagery both references Afrofuturism and is inherently anachronistic, as the antique clock is layered between images of 'present' and 'future' times. The women at the bottom is lounging in what might be interpreted as a past-present-future act of rest as resistance (@thenapministry). In almost a dream-like form, the women above her stands resilient, confident, facing forward. Her reflection is seen looking either backward or at the viewer in the shattered glass above her shoulder."
Please reach out to Nicole know if you'd like to share collage materials (canvases, cut-outs, tools, etc.) and/or co-create if you are interested in trying out collage!
(and BIG THANKS to Nicole for allowing me to share this beautiful work! I hope you all feel creative-intellectually inspired!)
V. In-Class Collaborative One-Pagers
PREPARATION: We begin with everyone finding two poignant quotes from the readings. You may not want to use really long quotes because you will have to hand-write these out.
- This week, we are back to small groups with markers and such. This week our charts will come in the form of a one-pager. See the examples below.
- As a group, share the two quotes from your readings out loud.
- Now you will need to map out everyone's two quotes onto your one pagers.
- After everyone's quotes are there, each person should contribute one synthesizing point onto the the page. What are the connections? What are the take-aways?
- Create a symbol or image that captures the message of your one-pager.
We close with a gallery walk. Be READY tuh go!
These are all sample projects that you can find outside of my office door created by TCU undergraduates.
