What issues did you find interesting that were posted on the Padlet? Discuss several that were posted that stood out to you (whether you responded or not).
Do you plan to stick with an issue you read about in your studio work as a jumping off point, or do you still need to keep looking?
What you might be struggling with regarding how to choose an LOI or with what we are doing
Describe the primary issue you’d like to explore and why you see it as worth exploring
Describe other issues you might be considering and why
You can use this to wrestle with more than one issue you might be considering (if you are still deciding), or what are some questions or curiosities you have dealing with several issues that could become a focus later. This exercise is very open in terms of what you can choose to write about.
