Hi, I joined a bit late, but I am a college administrator at Buffalo State College in Buffalo, NY. I did some transcribing at The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau when I was a grad student at UC Santa Barbara.

When chatting, you can select who can see what you post. If you want all attendees to see, make sure you pick that.
Aimee Woznick, Ph.D.

I never thought to compare Yo Soy Joaquin and Leaves of Grass (although I have taught both)! Very nice.
Aimee Woznick, Ph.D.

Now it seems so obvious!

Any educators here viewing this with your students?
Albertia
51:43
We're tuning in
kris
54:15
If you aren't sure of the dash before "ashes" in third line should we put it in brackets, so it is noted?
Cheryl
54:25
Welcome to those who are just joining - we're hearing 4 teachers think aloud as they transcribe
Albertia
56:10
Are we watching ideas for how to do this in class??
Cheryl
57:00
We're seeing a live demo - in just a moment we'll ask you to share ways to implement this in class
Lisa Fink
57:48
I like the idea MariBeth shared - it may help to use context clues while transcribing
kris
58:12
@Albertia - I think so.Also thinking very interesting to imagine the value of students listening to a teacher panel as example...
Dana Huff
58:28
Cursive is definitely a challenge for students.
Albertia
01:00:22
Ok, so the purpose of this is to teach students how to transcribe Whitman? How would you scaffold this? I'm wondering how I'd build interest, also.
kris
01:00:31
Crop to field could also be smaller to larger (speaking as a Midwesterner)
Kathleen
01:00:35
We are focusing on the act of transcribing. If we have time, we will invite everyone to actually transcribe.
Kathleen
01:01:00
our By the People staff will stay on after to answer questions like yours
kris
01:01:41
Does it matter that the line starting with "not a crop" is longer and he's indented it in his writing? Do we have to make that clear in our transcription?
Aimee Woznick, Ph.D.
01:03:53
Alfredo, would you be willing to share your email address so that I could ask you more about how to replicate your student activity (the "I am" poems) with college students?
kris
01:03:56
Quick question - if this is submitted for review, do others have chance to submit for review, or is it considered "complete"?
kris
01:04:11
think you just answered that - thanks
Derek Pollard
01:07:17
Thank you all for your helpful introduction to such a rich and engaging project.
Dr. Chadwick
01:07:24
The LOC;s collections have provided a wealth of primary resources fro me for years now, especially since 2012
Tammy Gee
01:07:35
Is there a timeline for this project?
kris
01:07:46
Thinking about the power of doing this "off site" with a document as a trial or example. Perhaps have a couple of teachers involved in group discussion. Then step two to go to the site.

thank you for attending!

Building a poem takes time. This shows that poetry is not a one and eone.
Susanna
01:08:12
We always look for activities for our student organizations. I envision a transcribe-a-thon as something we could easily organize.
Rebecca
01:08:15
I would do this as a double purpose experience. Engage students with mauscripts of works that we may be studying as literature. They may be intrigued by the opportunity to see primary sources in the author's hand and see a bit of the writing process as well.
Cathleen
01:08:28
I teach a Queer Lit course at the college level, and we talk a lot about “recovery” of same sex desiring writers. Students could work on transcribing as an exercise in making that material more accessible to others.
Karyn
01:08:37
Only reposting since my comment didn’t originally include attendees: 2nd Kris’ question. It seems quite crucial if we are preserving his work.
Including an em dash at start of line 3, at least in brackets?
Dr. Chadwick
01:08:42
Ss can learn, as can we from these resources not only about literature but also about wiring, thinking, history, and communication writ large, Thank you so much.
Dana Huff
01:08:50
Love that idea!
William McLachlan
01:08:50
Teaching writing as a dynamic process, and the importance of slowing down and deeply analyzing specific word choice.
Victoria
01:09:11
Hey Julie, you can work page by page or document by document. If you go to Campaigns > Projects > you can then select an item, and filter to search for ones that need review, transcription, etc.
kad2034
01:09:27
As a college instructor for first year writing, I could see working with both transcribing and looking at transcribing processes a a way to bring to life rhetorical concepts as well as mini-lessons around word choice.
Albertia
01:09:30
Ok. I teach ninth grade, at-risk learners. I'm thinking, to build interest, I'd have to make this much more hands-on. I'm thinking we'll spend some time creating a "How/Why to Transcribe" bulletin board. Also, we will likely create some pseudo pieces (for fun) and decode a few (not Whitman) in class for practice. I'm thinking to add the Whitman piece as the final product and as a collaborative task.
Susanna
01:10:00
I will definitely visit the loc.gov page with my AmLit studens when we reach Whitman. An hour or two of transcribing his poems and letters together will go a long way in generating interestin and appreciation for his work.
kris
01:10:08
like that @Albertia!
Dr. Chadwick
01:10:27
Yes!!!! Maria
abee
01:10:34
This is an amazing experience for students. I think they would be mesmerized. I'm going to share this with my juniors and seniors.
Victoria
01:10:44
great ideas Albertia! We did a hands on puzzle of the Gettysburg address for an in person event. Cut each word up and then asked the students to rearrange them like putting a puzzle together. We gave them a copy of the address!
Dana Huff
01:10:54
It can be so interesting for students to see these manuscripts!
Cheryl
01:11:52
Please be sure that your comments are directed to "All panelists and attendees"
Yakshi Palmer
01:12:00
I will use this with my creative writing students and 10th graders to teach the creative process as well as value & process of revision. Thank you!!
Albertia
01:12:46
Ohhh! Victoria! You just gave me the idea to transcribe and then translate! Students could find creative ways to showcase the piece! Awesome! Thankssss!
Alfredo Lujan
01:12:56
Hi, Aimee — sorry I didn’t see this until now
Dana Huff
01:13:24
Seeing writers’ word choices and how they might change their minds is also really interesting for students engaging in the same process. I think many students feel like poets such as Whitman create poetry “fully formed” and feel intimidated when creating their own poetry.
Cathleen
01:13:57
Do the longer set of instructions indicate how to transcribe the more complex documents like those folders with unusual spacing?
Alfredo Lujan
01:14:00
alujan@montedelsol.org or alfredolujan.NCTE@gmail.com — Bueno? Where do you teach?
Cheryl
01:14:12
Dana, that's part of my fascination with seeing these primary source documents - we see the writers' creative processes

This is my first webinar. HOw do I save the recording?
Aimee Woznick, Ph.D.
01:15:53
If you were to assign this as extra credit for an assignment, would there be any way to check if students had participated?
Albertia
01:16:03

Cheryl
01:16:16
We're recording this webinar, so you don't need to worry about saving it
Lisa Fink
01:16:23
We will send a recording to all folks who signed up so look for an email message including that link
