In class on Tuesday, we began discussing Project #3: Ways of Seeing Juxtapositions. Before you embark on your walk in the City Tech vicinity, I ask you to decide if you want to do research first or just set out and explore. In a comment on this post, please write which approach you’re taking (research before exploring or not). Whether you choose to do research first or not, consider what research you could do if you wanted to have a plan, what questions you might ask, and what resources you might consult to find the answers.
It might seem like doing research first is more work–that’s possible. But doing research first might allow you to find a juxtaposition that you’re really interested in. Writing about something you’re interested in will certainly make for a better writing experience than something you don’t care about at all, so the research could be time well spent.
Still, there is something exciting about setting out on an adventure with no sense of what will happen or where you will go. Research could follow based on what you see and what you want to pursue further.
