Mike, Tania Zittoun's prism analysis (as you know) adds the fourth vector of "personal sense" to the person-object-other triangle:


I was interested in how the young people made personal sense of the cultural elements and relationships afforded in the the program.  Mentors from the community radio station and arts organizations introduced non-school-like artifacts to the school curriculum, such as ways of talking, writing, editing, and producing media.  The students did unexpected things with the resources made available.  For example, they used their own media productions to change attitudes among siblings and other youth in the school and their communities about exposing young children to drug use. In some cases these feature stories and digital narratives became cultural elements that were taken-up by other youth for their own meaning-making processes.

Tantalizing information, Dana. What is the basic idea of Tanya Z's prism analysis and what does the phrase, "community-linked" mean? I find
TZ's ideas very stimulating and have engaged in community-university
 linked programs for some kind. how the prisms and programs related?
