This is where we can discuss what we'd like to do next.

How should we structure the information in the book?

  • I think that the start of each section should have a SeeMe to give a visual description of what is going to follow.
    • Sounds like an interesting idea, are you thinking that the SeeMe model would describe in some way a particular case study? Would each chapter than be focused on examples of "Civic Intelligence"?

  • Perhaps we should work in teams to develop possible outlines?
    • I think getting into teams sounds like a good idea because I don't see the majority of the class (myself included) doing much on their own. I find myself being completely lost and not knowing how to start but with a group we would all be supported in our ideas and sorta forced into action making progress actually happen on here.
      • Interesting idea Vera! Maybe we could allocate part of a Saturday to do just that.

Proposal For Chapter

  • I am interested in the moment that an individual, or group, makes the choice to actively do something to create a measurable change in their community. What led to that action? What made them commit? I am proposing a section where people are interviewed and asked about this process. For me, the measurement of civic intelligence is through observing action within a community. This is a seed of an idea that I am still fleshing out but I wanted to put it out to the group. I would be very interested in the process of interviewing others.
