A meeting with Dr. O'Callaghan has clarified my thoughts on the theoretical framework for my study. I have been reassured that I do not need to work with Grounded Theory. However it has been interesting to explore this. In particular the technique of 'memoing'.
The images here are of my creative and mindful session at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop yesterday. Whilst I created S A T B name plaques in porcelain clay I was reflecting on the recent initial session with the choir and planning for the second. This was crucial time to focus on the activity with the singers. I realised that I have probably used the songs in the wrong order.
My options now are
- To use My Bonnie Lass and disregard the fact that this my not adequately measure the teaching approach or reception.
- Replacing it with another of Morley's madrigals proper - On a fair morning or Help, I Fall, both from his first book of Madrigal's for Four Voices.
