So, the new semester has begun, and, as it happens, I have two classes that require some form of online documentation (one of them is not strictly online per say, but that is what I am choosing to do.
Just so I can try and gain some clarity within my own mind upon what these particular projects are, I will read them from the syllabus and describe them as follows:
1) For EMUS 202 (MUSIC EDUCATION), I am to compile a personal Guitar curriculum, that is, everyone in class has to learn to play Guitar, and document their progress. You can imagine, being an Guitar player myself already, how exciting this was to hear. Now I have a solid reason to go and play uninterrupted. This brings me great joy. At first I was thinking I would do something like I did for EAES201, in terms of working on something new and somewhat more advanced than others in the class, but upon further consideration I feel working through the beginners book will give me a stronger foundation to work from, and strengthen some of my weaker areas, i.e. sight reading music.
2) For EVIS 202 (VISUAL EDUCATION), I am to submit weekly art on a WordPress blog (how convenient!), which is meant to be individualized and enjoyable. It involves taking two photographs relating to a particular theme, of which I am still yet to decide, and then to write a paragraph of my thoughts associated with the making of these photos. I’m thinking about doing something about my kids growth; Molly (my eight month old baby) is due to walk any time now, so I think that might be something nice to capture and reflect upon.
Anyway, this is an introductory post, of sort, to initiate the beginning of these two projects and set the proverbial ball in motion.
