April 2 Prompt

From Dr. Allison Palumbo, ENGL Instructor & Author of: 

Love and the Fighting Female:  A Critical Study of Onscreen Depictions

 

Prompt:

Think about your favorite room from when you were a young child. Try to picture every detail, look around the room in your memory. Think about how it smelled, how it looked, how it sounded, felt, even what tastes are in the room. Write down the details. Then write down the way recalling it makes you feel. What surprises are there for you about your memories, other associations? Then, what did you notice about explaining the details? about explaining them, putting them into words? What makes it easy for you to get the words down? Tomorrow, practice with a new favorite place you have now. 

 

The rationale in Lieu of a Poem

The goal is to help yourself remember how many good memories you have. But the journey to that goal occurs requires you to take the time to focus on those memories, bring your attention to them. That focus will also calm you. When you write them down, that helps reinforce the memory or thought. Bonus—you have learned how to draft a description, and you have also spent time capturing your own wonderful, unique thoughts. As for the last few questions, those are to prompt metacognition (thinking about your own thoughts) to help you learn what prompts you to write more comfortably—so when you sit down to write all of those Discussion Board posts, you can intentionally use those skills or strategies to make that writing easier, more fluid.
