Look all around. People use photos to sell to us every day. Commercials, billboards, yard signs, social media...they all use images to capture their audiences + influence change. Photos are used to sell, to make a point, and to argue.
In this activity, students will use the power of images to deliver their argument. They'll hone skills in line of reasoning + real-world communication. But in this argument...NO words allowed!
Use this 'teacher version' of the student packet to prepare + implement the Photo Essay Assignment. Type directly into the pdf, or delete the words [Insert Text Here], and print it out.
This printable student packet provides space for students to take notes + plan out their photo essay presentations.
The virtual twin of the printable student packet, this version is created for the distance learning and/or 1:1 environment. This digital student packet allows your student to type directly into it as they take notes on the slides and plan their photo essay.
This is the best part! Guide students through the project and provide examples with these colorful, eye-catching slides.
Not sure what to say? Use this script to teach the lesson. If you are teaching virtually and find yourself using videos, use the script to record the audio to play over the slides.
Use these slides to teach students about appropriate ethical use of photos found on the internet. This is an awesome addition to not only this project but any other where students are using found images.
This printable version of the ethical use slides are better for printing as they use less color.
Reflection is a key component of learning. Take the time to reflect with students using these reflection questions.
