Tompkins (2012) supplied a number of examples for multi-genre projects. These ranged from scrapbooks, maps, collages, and podcasts (p. 287). These multi-genre projects got me thinking about the directions I could take my topic. For example, my classmate and I discussed a map that illustrated how most of my family lives on the same street as one another. This map could also extend to other parts of Seneca Falls and convey one aspect of my concept I discovered while brainstorming, "A small town is like a big family." I really like the idea of a scrapbook. While I could literally make a scrapbook about my Italian family, I thought it would also be awesome to write my three pieces and then place them in a scrapbook. This can add another dimension to my genre project and will allow me to use pictures and other types of media and writing to express my overall message.
So many ideas, so many options, way too much time to think about it!
