Great way to start a year or unit in photography. Excellent handout to teach students the steps of caring for their photography equipment.
This lesson will help students understand the expectations of a photography classroom, learn the steps of taking care of their equipment, and connect their responsibilities with the art of photography--an excellent way to align your classroom to the National Core Arts and Common Core State Standards.
—Guidelines on how to care for cameras and other photography equipment
—Checklists for understanding a photography class’ specific rules and procedures
—8 questions connecting students to the responsibilities of being a photographer
Combine this lesson with my “Scavenger Hunt” and “Images in our World” to create an introductory unit that covers the four art processes: Creating, Presenting, Responding, and Connecting. An excellent choice if you don’t have enough cameras and need to rotate students through a photography unit.
