This week you have a choice between two activities designed to stimulate discussion. Your choices are “poem” or “photograph”:
Poem: Write a haiku style poem about your research: either the subject matter or the process of conducting the research. A haiku is a form of poetry where there are three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third line has 5 syllables. The haiku may contain multiple stanzas of this 3-line form, so you are not limited to only 17 syllables. Share your poem with the class, and reflect on what new insights you may have gained about your research by tapping into your creative side.
Photograph: Find a photograph of a friend or loved one, share a picture of the photograph on the discussion board, and describe it. Then, look at the photographs that one or two classmates posted, and then write about that person’s photo(s) as though you were a reporter telling that person’s story.
Choose option 1 to write a poem.
