Capstone #1 – Choosing A Topic

Hello everyone,

My class just started a project called Capstone. A  Capstone project is where, first you choose a topic and then do a bunch of research, interview someone, and do a site visit. Today I’m going to focus on choosing a topic. My teacher wanted us to keep an open mind about what to do so we don’t just pick something that we think will be easy but we pick something that interests us. To help us choose a good topic she gave us a packet with questions on it like, “what do you collect” and “if you could invent something what would it be?”. I think this packet was helpful because if you can’t think of a topic you can look back at some of your answers and it will help you come up with one.

After thinking about it for a while I think that I’m going to choose interior designing. I want to do interior designing because ever since I was about eight I’ve wanted to be an interior designer. I think that interior designing interests me so much because I like turning an ugly, cluttered space into a beautiful, organized one.

I met with my teacher a couple of times to discuss my topic. We talked about doing something more specific then just interior design. We found this website that had the seven elements of interior design, I wanted to learn more about that specific part of interior design.

  1. I like how you talked about the packet and how it helped you. And I like how you said since you were eight you became interested in interior design. I think you should talk about how you thought of interior design because you said the reason you did it is because since you were eight you became interested but that doesn’t really tell me how you thought of the topic.

  2. I liked your post because I like how you explained what a Capstone is and the packet we got. I liked how you also said why you chose that topic, interior design.

  3. Turning clutter into a beautiful, organized space sounds very satisfying and worthwhile! I’m looking forward to learning about the seven elements of interior design, Avery!

  4. I liked your blog post a lot. You really explained your whole process in choosing your topic. The blog post was very interesting. Nice job.:)
