#4 A Different Kind Of Map

I got a little over invested in drawing my asparagus, so after the fifth one I decided to revert to using arrows to connect my thoughts.

    Katherine–cool map. Did you find it helped you organize your thinking? I’m a big fan of thinking maps. I find that they force me to think differently about my ideas, looking at connections and relationships without getting caught up in the writing itself. I see that you have quite a few categories and that these led to questions. From looking at the map, it’s clear that you ended up focusing on the left side a bit more–and SNAP seems to be of particular interest, perhaps. Might be cool to do some more research on that program–its prevalence, its effectiveness in VT, its limitation here…Thanks for your thinking!

    • Hi Emily! Yes, I did find the map very helpful in organizing my thinking. I really like that it made me focus on the content rather than writing, which I often spend too much time on. I did focus more on the left side, and I have been very interested in SNAP so I think it is something I will look more into in the future!

  • I really love this assignment– and that you went for the asparagus in a BIG WAy! Fabulous. But more than that, I love your interest in Food Justice. I can’t imagine a more basic need, or right, and yet, I hear so often in school and beyond, that people are hungry. Thank you for thinking this over so deeply.
