The intention of this project is for students to select a historical photograph and replicate it by placing themselves within the photograph as one of the characters in the photo.The objective of this project is to help students make a personal connection and identification with either a historical character or event. My hope is that students will select something they are interested in and enjoy trying to recreate the image. The finished replication is to clearly identify the student within the picture. This project can be easily adapted to a collaborative project with the media teacher and English teacher.
This project is a huge "hit" at my school. Parents, students, and staff all enjoy coming to see the projects. This project includes, instructions, rubrics, a power point, and helpful hints.
