After 10 years of teaching digital photography, I have fine-tuned 5 beginning projects that focus on 4 essential photography composition skills. The fifth project is a cumulative assessment project to summarize those skills. The next collection continues the focus on composition. I have included teacher notes, suggested introductory activities and tips including an outline of a History of Photography slide show that is a great way to start the class, and a link to a Powerpoint of copyright free Rule of Thirds examples . I have kept this as a Word document so that you can copy and paste and edit the student instructions. If you are new to teaching photography, these lessons and tips will get you started and I will soon add more. Feel free to contact me with any questions about how to manage a digital photography classroom.
