Catch-Up with Nathan and Victoria: Part VIII

Victoria Barner

Today’s topic? This catch-up chronicle will capture the great gaggle of group projects I poured over in this stellar semester. Ah yes, this semester I conquered (well, I’m still in the process of conquering one of them) not one, not two, but THREE intensive group projects–and I have lived to tell the tale. Here are the details:

1. HOD 1200 Understanding Organizations: This is the project that’s still in progress–we already did a presentation and are now working on our group essay. Basically, for our project we had to study an organization through the different frames we learned about in class–structural, political, human resources, and symbolic. We had to learn about the organization’s structure, challenges, and strengths by conducting a variety of interviews and touring the organization.

Our class met at the gold star. USN is the red box. Very close by.

Our group chose the nearby University School of Nashville, which was awesome because it’s right across from where we have class, but I never knew much about it. It was also really cool to apply what we were learning in class to a real-world situation, and everyone we talked to at USN was super helpful in aiding us with our project. Now, we just have a nice long paper to write for Wednesday!

2. CMST 254 Methods of Rhetorical Analysis: Like Nathan, I also was involved in writing another blog this semester! For this project, we worked in a group to come up with a common theme, and then analyze visual images that related to that theme using the methods we had learned in class. Over the course of the school year, we’ve been reading and discussing rhetorical analyses by academic scholars, as well as examining the methods they use (the course is aptly named) and using them ourselves in writing essays. This might not sound particularly interesting, but this class was actually one of my favorites this semester and our professor was fantastic!

We did our project on the color red, which made for a really fascinating topic because the color red can appear in so many different contexts. If you’re really looking for more to read, you can check out our blog here, I wrote the last two entries.

3. MGRL 190 Principles of Marketing: This third project is perhaps my most intensive and also one of the coolest I’ve ever done, so it deserves its own post. Stay tuned for all the wonderful details of my marketing project when the Catch-Up Chronicles return with another chapter!
