Lend a Hand – Senior Writing Project
December 8, 2008
Session 3 – Week 2
Attending: Jim, Ruth, Betty, Vivian & Sherri
We started out with journaling, followed by sharing. We then discussed how the home work had gone, and Sherri introduced the revision activity. The idea of the activity was to get feedback, in the form of questions, from the other participants. During the discussion, it was discovered that one participant found the questions to be too personal. She was uncomfortable with the idea of answering some of them and was happy that she’d had a choice of which questions to answer. She was also concerned about the publishing of the answers with names attached. Sherri reassured her that her privacy will be respected and that we can submit the question’s answers anonymously.
The revision process produced some good questions, however, there were no revisions made. Sherri gave the next set of questions for this week’s homework.
Betty had an extra piece she’d written this week, that she read for us. It was about her home and Winterhaven, as well as an invitation to the neighborhood’s Christmas lightshow.
