Abstract

Findings from my graduate thesis research project will be presented in a “digital poster” format. The context of my research was a senior “Writing Skills” class at a local high school, which was designed specifically to remediate students who had failed to pass the writing test required for graduation. The classroom teacher and I collaborated to create a digital “identity text” project. The data, collected through observation, in-depth interviews with students and their teacher, and a survey, were analyzed for participants’ approach to a culturally-affirming, creative project within a constrained environment. I will also share excerpts of the creative projects.
