#2: Thinking it Through

I’m not sure what I will do as a topic. I have a few ideas in the works on things I’m interested in. One of the best things of this project is the collaboration of it all, because I might be able to find something through someone else. I have a lot of interest in pursuing wealth inequality in Vermont, drug addiction, and the decline in Vermont farming. These are obviously not set in stone by any means as I’m sure other things will come up that I love, but as of right now those are some of the top interests of mine.

    Hi Eli,

    My name is a Nate Archambault. i am an English teacher at Bellows Free Academy in St. Albans. I will be one of your blog readers throughout the course.

    You have some very topical and relevant interests to pursue. is there a connection between the topics that you’re interested in studying? Are there any patterns or trends that would allow you to pursue all three?

    Please let me know if I can help you narrow your search or provide guidance in any way.

    Hi Eli.

    I see some correlation in wealth inequality and drug addiction, as well as wealth inequality and the decline of farming. Perhaps these interests of yours are not mutually exclusive. I also think that thinking about a topic you love is critical. I worked with students with this project last year and without question in the middle of the work, really caring about the topic helped to keep students motivated and engaged during the hard part.
    I am wondering if you have a specific way you are looking for topics to consider? Sometimes creative stewing needs a systematic way to begin.

    Happy muddling.
