It’s easy to think about reflection as a process of looking backward. Something close to “review.” But as we know from our studies of storytelling this semester, we can also create something new in order to think about what’s come before.
For this final, reflection assignment, please apply your learning from this class to a current or future project from outside of class. Rather than tell us about this application, put us right in the middle of it (storytelling!) by showing how you’ll apply this learning. For teachers, this might mean creating a lesson plan that involves (digital) storytelling. For parents, it might mean taking up a storytelling practice with your kids and recording a story together. Other professionals might try to find a different perspective on a current project by narrating it in the form of a story, where stakeholders become characters and outcomes become multiple endings.
What will you do with what we have done this semester?
Please post your reflection as a blog post to this site. Your reflection may be text-based or include other tools — just be sure to link from your blog post.
Deadline: Friday, May 1
