Coaching Styles For Boys’ And Girls’ Sports Teams, Jack Murphy 2019 University of Dayton

Coaching Styles For Boys’ And Girls’ Sports Teams, Jack Murphy

Line by Line: A Journal of Beginning Student Writing

The writing process for this article began when my English 198 teacher assigned our third major essay, instructing that it was to be on the topic of gender and include original research. Being a lifelong athlete, I decided to investigate how coaching styles might differ depending upon whether one is coaching boys or girls. With this in mind, I set out to interview the coaches that I know so as to gain their insights and approaches to coaching. I developed a set of questions and interviewed four coaches of varying ages who had coached girls and/or boys at different ...


Sustainability Education At The University Of Dayton, Olivia M. LeBlanc 2019 University of Dayton

Sustainability Education At The University Of Dayton, Olivia M. Leblanc

Line by Line: A Journal of Beginning Student Writing

To prepare for this Researched Argument writing assignment, I completed a research proposal that involved drafting a research question and creating a general timeline for conducting reseach leading up to this project's final submission. I then analyzed ten different sources through creating an annotated bibliography that examined the credibility, content, and relevance of each resource in relation to my paper's topic. In addition to collecting resouces, I personally attended SAP events and interviewed the SAP student leader in order to understand the innerworkings of sustainability education at the University of Dayton. I then composed a draft that was ...


Insight On Female Genital Mutilation, Kara Shunnarah 2019 University of Dayton

Insight On Female Genital Mutilation, Kara Shunnarah

Line by Line: A Journal of Beginning Student Writing

This assignment was our third and final essay for this course; however, this essay is a continuation from my second essay in this class. Dr. Vorachek allowed us to pick any topic we felt we wanted to write about as long as it directly or indirectly related to gender. I had difficulty choosing at first, but then I began thinking about issues in our world and FGM stuck out to me. I first learned about FGM in high school, but never had the time for extensive research. I saw this assignment as an opportunity. Thus, I researched FGM, gathering information ...


Du Fu And Chinese Poetic Expression: How Politics, Nature, And Self Become One, Binhnam Nguyen 2019 Grant High School

Du Fu And Chinese Poetic Expression: How Politics, Nature, And Self Become One, Binhnam Nguyen

Young Historians Conference

The Tang Dynasty poet Du Fu introduced a new style of writing to Chinese poetry with his new interpretation of how to write poetry and for what purpose it can serve. Living in the midst of political turmoil, Du drew inspiration from the instability and used poetry as a means of expressing his anguish, but nationalist sentiments that wished for the prosperity of China. His different stylistic approach to poetry personalized the art of poetic writing and changed its language to express something more lyrical and with feeling. Du’s role in changing the course of Chinese poetic expression can ...

Serious Interactive Fiction: Constraints, Interfaces, And Creative Writing Pedagogy, Robert Terry, Lisa Dusenberry 2019 Georgia Southern University

Serious Interactive Fiction: Constraints, Interfaces, And Creative Writing Pedagogy, Robert Terry, Lisa Dusenberry

Journal of Creative Writing Studies

To better understand how serious interactive fiction (IF) fits into creative writing pedagogy, we first consider how interface offers both affordances and constraints to the writer. Second, we discuss the ways teaching serious IF foregrounds the benefit of digital tools for creative writing. Third, we examine the interrelationship among research, interface, and procedural rhetoric. Fourth, we present findings from our research study by summarizing and discussing examples from roundtable feedback. We focus on students’ perception of serious IF’s affordances, concluding with how serious IF provides productive constraints for creative writing practice.


Betrayals In Academia And A Black Demon From Ephesus, Suleman Lazarus 2019 Independent Researcher, CCCSR, 6 Thornes Office Park, Monckton Road, West Yorkshire, Wakefield, WF2 7AN, UK.

Betrayals In Academia And A Black Demon From Ephesus, Suleman Lazarus

Wisdom in Education

The poem is about my PhD experience. The title and parts of the themes are derived from an incident in the Bible (Acts 19:13-20). In order to provide a deeper meaning to my story, I have deployed a biblical allusion which connects with the story of the sons of Sceva, who made unsuccessful attempts to exorcise a man from Ephesus. They failed primarily because they operated not in the spirit but in the flesh.

This creative compilation includes a critical book review, assessed through an autobiographical lens with narrative commentary; a personal essay set in early childhood; and a second personal essay from the young adulthood perspective.

Much of the preliminary work for this composition has been an ongoing process of reading, learning, and applying techniques from ...


Sunday Dinners Creative Introduction & Poem Analyses, Sophie Clark 2019 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Sunday Dinners Creative Introduction & Poem Analyses, Sophie Clark

Theses/Capstones/Creative Projects

In tandem with my Writer’s Workshop poetry thesis, in which I will work with Dr. Lisa Fay Coutley to produce an original chapbook of 25-30 poems, my Honors thesis will analyze my use of poetic devices and forms throughout my chapbook. To do so, I will write a 250-page analysis of each poem and its overall contribution to the book as a whole. In addition, I will also provide an introduction to my chapbook upon its completion, in which I will summarize my responses to detail an overview of my thematic and structural concepts.


Friends Or Foes? Composition And Creative Writing, Christopher N. Davis 2019 Utah State University

Friends Or Foes? Composition And Creative Writing, Christopher N. Davis

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

In the current realm of collegiate English, there exists a polarized separation between two fields: composition and creative writing. Though there are a number of ways these two fields intersect, they are seen and taught as distinct entities, and have been so for much of the last three decades. Some scholars see the blending of the two fields as potentially hindering to students’ writing development in either field – the idea that attempting to do two things at once, rather than focusing on each one at a time, will inevitably result in less-effectiveness in both. Others see creative writing as having ...


Existentialmd.Com: Building Towards An Embodied Internet Aesthetic, Natasha Ochshorn 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Existentialmd.Com: Building Towards An Embodied Internet Aesthetic, Natasha Ochshorn

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

ExistentialMD.com is a website that aims to treat the body as an emotional and social subject in an online space that is purposefully bodied and fleshy. The website contrasts original creative nonfiction essays with a formal structure that alludes to the medical website WebMD. Mimicking WebMD’s symptom checker, which asks users to locate their discomfort with increasing specificity before suggesting conditions they might be suffering from, ExistentialMD uses a similar structure to yield results that are more exploratory than diagnostic, and which envision the body as a site of experience and emotionality. Form and content combine to create ...


Girl Thing, Morghen Tidd 2019 University of Maine

Girl Thing, Morghen Tidd

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

“Girl Thing” is a collection of five original stories that are an exploration of autofiction (the hybrid genre straddling autobiographical writing and fiction writing) in which I consider the ways different clichés and genre tropes can be subverted. In particular, I am interested in the way(s) in which the generic category of “girl” (as a way of diminishing young women who are considered too immature, too feminine, too lovestruck, et cetera to be considered proper women) is often portrayed in writing and other works of art, and how this category can be reclaimed and recognized as a being with ...


"Name Her Reiko!": The Ikemiya Diaspora, Morgan Ikemiya 2019 California State University, Monterey Bay

"Name Her Reiko!": The Ikemiya Diaspora, Morgan Ikemiya

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This creative-nonfiction project encapsulates a Japanese family diaspora to America beginning in the late 1880s. Through short stories, poems, and monologues, the author expresses familial struggles such as living in a foreign land and being Japanese in White America. The author reflects on her grandparents' time in the Japanese internment camps where they faced hardship and hegemonic oppression as well as her father's experience of growing up Japanese-American in Los Angeles. The stories weave together history, hardship, and race to create a unique diaspora story.


Sacred Lucidity: Embodied Identity Through The Lens Of Poetry, Abby Laporte 2019 Dominican University of California

Sacred Lucidity: Embodied Identity Through The Lens Of Poetry, Abby Laporte

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

Social location and personal identity must be explored through the art of poetry, in conjunction with academic analysis. In a 28-page poetry chapbook and nine-page analytical essay, "Sacred Lucidity" provides a deep examination of social justice and radical personal healing. The introductory essay takes a close look at "Mirror" by Sylvia Plath, "in salem" by Lucille Clifton, and two poems from "milk and honey" by Rupi Kaur, all in relation to their societal impact in demographic identification and harsh truths of trauma in personal histories. This thesis explores the human condition and specifics of self, while taking on philosophical themes ...

"A Complicated Story, An Unsolved Mystery": An Experiment In Poetry And The Ethics Of Representation, Darren Wood 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

"A Complicated Story, An Unsolved Mystery": An Experiment In Poetry And The Ethics Of Representation, Darren Wood

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The New York Juvenile Asylum, founded in 1851, was one of New York’s first institutional responses to the problems associated with the poor. It, and the theories of asylum that undergird the institution, still exist today in the form of Children’s Village. The location of Children’s Village, located just a few hundred yards from my home, prompted me to consider the distance between my family and the children who reside at Children’s Village; between my historical context and that of the children who resided at the New York Juvenile Asylum - and their parents who surrendered them ...


Breaking The Fourth Wall, Esther Elizabeth Karram 2019 Liberty University

Breaking The Fourth Wall, Esther Elizabeth Karram

Masters Theses

This creative, non-fiction thesis is written in memoir form and analyzes how a person perceives reality, how that perception is broken, and how a person copes with the limitations of a new reality. In examining my life, I came to realize that many of my performative tendencies stemmed from a desire to be loved and the belief that love was contingent upon perfection. What follows is my struggle to try to maintain that perfection, the failure to do so, and the slow acceptance of being an imperfect person in an imperfect world.
