So far, I have two ideas about how my final project might take shape. The first idea is to write a series of letters to send to people in power within the school district. This might include the superintendent, principal, the school board, special education teachers, or general education teachers. I do not really know what these letters will be about or who exactly I will send them to because I have not researched my topic nor formed an opinion based on my sources. I will have a more clear view of this after I do some research and begin reading my sources. My second idea for a project format would be to submit my writing to a journal, magazine, or newspaper. I believe that if my research gives me strong opinions that I feel the world needs to hear, then I will choose this option. I do not know how to go about doing this but I’m sure I could figure it out. I would want to either submit these articles to a local or online newspaper or to a magazine. I want people to read my writing and have it change their opinion. I want my project to affect how people think about disabilities and have my project change how special education is run. This will not simply be an article or letter you read and forget about, it will be strong enough to change people’s minds.
