To Shoot or Not to Shoot
The students are asked to create a photo essay. This is accomplished in several stages. They begin by completing research and answering questions. This gives them an understanding of the differing elements that are used to create an eye catching picture. Once they have a basic understanding they then are challenged to find pictures which demonstrate those same elements. This is followed by the completion of a finished presentation.
Another aspect of this particular project is the cultural and historical links. The students research into the elements of a picture gives them an understanding of the
architecture features used on community buildings. As well, when the students are on their photo field trip they are visiting some historical and modern buildings and viewing them with "new eyes".
