Chapters 8 – 11:

For the past 7 weeks, I’ve given you specific instructions to follow as you work through the Creative Response section of this study.

I’ve asked you to try creative activities you may not think you will enjoy doing.

Now, we’re going to cut the cord! For this week, and for the remaining weeks, you will have the freedom to create your memory prompt, using any method you want!

Feel free to continue to experiment!

Continue to help each other learn new techniques!

If you’ve been relying on your leader to provide you with the materials you need to explore the creative possibilities we’ve experimented with, now it’s time for you to take ownership of your creative endeavors.

So, for the remainder of this study, plan to bring your own gel pens, paper, and whatever else you think you’ll need.

If you have any new insights or discover any new techniques, please share them with your group!
