Observing by Writing

This week, Dr. Nichols' EN 101 Class will practice close, detailed observation in their blog entries. They will visit a variety of public places, and proactice active observation. (Like the great philosopher Yogi Berra once said, "You can observe a lot just by watching.")

Students will share their sketches, observations, and musings in their blogs, listed in the column at the right of this text. If your colleague is describing a place you are familiar with, you may wish to comment on their reflections. This process of observational writing will foster rich discovery. As Naturalist and Educator Louis Agassiz said, "A pencil is the best of eyes."
