Bettina Fliegel Hello! Yes, their grandparents were not easily available and the students only had a few nights to work on this. When I asked them about their grandparents, both said that their grandparents are residing in different states. But do you think that the card guideline should still ask them to interview their grandparents?
Marsha Hurst Thank you for telling me about Claytie! What an amazing project. I recently contacted Claytie because I think her project would be an amazing idea and inspiration for a creative storytelling media and or activity. Plus, she used qualitative research to craft the production- I must learn from her! Similarly, for a final proposal for the arts in education program at Harvard Graduate School of Education, I proposed incorporating qualitative research and interviews to continue the Illuminations Program, which is a rotating art exhibit housed in the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, designed to enhance our environment of care and reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. Instead of simply featuring artworks by regional and national artists, I proposed that the art gallery become a collaborative gallery in which artworks are themed and created according to patient's imaginations or dreams. In this way, artists are encouraged to interview and get to know patients to create pieces that are inspired by the patients themselves.
