In the article, Seas’ mention the word “sticky”. Stickiness is a quality Galdwell claims is essential to making an idea memorable- so memorable, in fact, that it can create change, that can spur someone to action. (Seas 56) For my action project, I probably need to do something memorable to the exercise science professors for them to remember the importance of the effects that lifetime fitness brought to students. So they will make changes for the lifetime fitness class. I am thinking about to give some quotes from the students from the survey to the professors. Because those quotes are students’ feedback, they are totally related to the professors’ class. Some of the students’ intense feedback will be memorable to the professors. The other thing I might be able to make our project memorable to the professors is to give discuss the issue of lifetime fitness in the gym. To use the gym equipment to demonstrate the issues. For example, a lot of the students do not know how to use those types of equipment properly. The professors need to give a training to the students on how to use all of the equipment. By using the gym area, we would make our suggestion memorable to the professors. The memorable things will work better for them to take our advice.
At the end of Seas’ article, Seas ended up her article with “Rather than resting comfortably on our laurels with our “complete” text in hand, we would instead find ourselves impelled to keep writing, keep communicating, and keep participating in the networks we are hoping to change.” This is related to this May term class. This is what we are doing for the project. The only way you want to make changes in the community is to communicate with people in different ways, to interact with people in the community.
