My approach to coming up with a character was to look through the yearbooks and just look at names and faces and see which one popped out at me and finally one did. My character’s name will be Anne Marie Berkeley; she was from Alexandria Va and a Home Economics major who graduated in 1954. I thought it would be interesting to be a home economics major mostly because I know most of the other ladies in the class won’t do it and I thought it would be beneficial to have at least one in the “class.” I’m not sure how much further we’re supposed to delve into the character at this point but let me know if you want more information.

Photo Recreation:Academics

Monday, April 9th, 2012

These are the two images I chose for the academic page. The advantage to the one on the left is that it shows a glimpse into the classroom during the fifties however the disadvantage is that half of the picture is of the professor’s back. The one on the right is actually the one that I would rather do because the room that it was taken in still exists and looks very similar and I think it would be interesting to have the three pictures together to show how similar they are when we’re all finished. The only disadvantage is that the right picture isn’t in a classroom. Other than the obvious materials(clothes) I think either one will be rather simple to recreate and we would need the same materials for each one (old notebooks, books and writing utensils) the main difficulty would be finding a room for the photo on the left to be taken in because of the chalk board. I’m not too familiar with all of the buildings on campus so i don’t know how difficult it would be to work around that.
