Over and Out (for this project)
I like to keep up on my trucker lingo - just in case this rhetoric and comp thing doesn't work out. I am just taking a few min. to sign off for the semester.
The project that would not be focused final found its focus and I am really excited about the final design, which studies two classes to try to discover students' processes for selecting and placing images within traditional texts. I think this might make a terrific study - if there were world enough and time.
I am hopeful that much of my work will be useful in my dissertation. In fact, maybe I feel the diss. shifting in that direction entirely. This is the problem with reserach, one cool study or idea leads you to another. I have about 10 dissertation topic ideas, but that is another post for another blog.
I hope to use this strategy with future projects and research. The feedback I got from my research buddies was great - thanks guys. You rawk (here observing the 1980's spelling conventions of rock)! It really helped to "talk" my ideas through online and narrow a topic in a field I am far too fascinated by.
