I’ve mentioned here and on social media that I have gone back to university. Being well into my 30s I’ve found it a bit of struggle but it is something that is important to me and to furthering my career so I decided it was well past time to finish my degree.
But I need your help.
The class I’ve used as a jumping off point requires interviews as part of research. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m still social distancing to the best of my ability. I have a child that is not yet eligible for the vaccine and keeping those dreaded germs away from her is my highest priority. To say the least, it makes face to face interactions and observing social spaces a little bit difficult.
Thats where you come in.
I need you to, please, answer some interview questions! Could this be considered a bookish tag? Absolutely, but I’m not very good with creating graphics so it is what it is (for now). Just for some background information, this is a class that studies literacies. I will not be using real names or handles when presenting my research and these answers will be used in an academic setting.
I appreciate you all so very much for your help.🖤
