Writing Workshop Finding A Theme

1) Read through your field notes. Then think back to your site visit. What things stand out in your memory of the visit? People, feelings, bodily sensations, things you saw or heard? Write without stopping for 5 minutes.

2) Turn to a partner and read what you have written. Together, using the NY time articles as models discuss a possible theme such as “The site is full of incongruities” or “The site is a window into bygone eras soon to be but a memory.” This theme will help you decide what info/details to include and how to describe spaces and artifacts.
