English Language and Literature
The students in the Fall 2019 ENG 210 Public Action Writing collaborated with The Learning Tree to study desire-frameworks and asset-based community development practices. Students then documented the gifts, talents, and passions of residents in the Near Northwest Area. Over the semester, students and residents wrote collaboratively to create several projects that challenge stereotypes commonly associated with urban areas. This poster will showcase the resulting projects, share student and resident perspectives, and describe asset orientations.
