‘Free writing’ what I know

The best way to start any writing project is to put aside all the information you have and spend some time free writing. You can write about anything. To guide you we suggest you write to the following questions:

  • What do I know about the history of the situation? (5 minutes)
  • What do I know about how different people experience the situation? (5 minutes)
  • What patterns or contradictions have I noticed? (5 minutes)
  • What have people tried to do to address the situation (5 minutes)

Now get into your case study groups and read your pieces to each other. As you hear other people’s stories make notes of what is different to what you have written.
