After receiving feedback from my design direction presentation about how gender perceptions had a stronger weight in my current content structure, as well as finally watching “The People vs. OJ Simpson” and discovering the story of Marcia Clarke I decided to shift the focus of my book from perceptions in general to male vs. female perceptions.
Then I was faced with the question:
how am I going to get my reader to the pairing of high school speech and debate data visualizations with stories of women experiencing gender bias based on perceptions?
I wrote the text for my introduction that would answer this question and get my reader to my table of contents with the pairings of the data visualizations and stories of women.
Obviously these spreads are basic since I was focusing on mastering the new content flow. Based on my feedback from Chrissi I am now working on furthering the design of my spreads, both visually and typographically. I am also working on bringing references from Speech and Debate into the subtitles and other areas of my book. This has been in the back of my mind since Thursday and so far I have thought of:
Starting the book with “Judge, ready? Audience, ready? Ok, let’s begin.”
Contention 1, Contention 2, Contention 3
Problem, Cause, Solution
Table of Contents = A Brief Off-The-Clock Roadmap
Introducing my references after my introduction like they do in interpretation events
Implement time limit somehow
