Need an answer to “Teacher, what can I do now that I’m through?” Want a fun way to practice teamwork, critical thinking, and problem solving? What about a new way to check for learning? This Photography Portfolio is definitely Something Different to Try.
Help students view the world in a different way…to really see and not just look. In teams (not the competitive “ I won/You lost” kind of teams), students scavenge their campus through the eyes of a camera to find letter shapes, geometric figures, verbs, and the like embedded in everyday scenes. Teamwork, flexibility of thought, originality, and multiple perspectives will be very important in this problem solving search.
It’s Something Different to Try. You and your students just might like it.
