Product Description
Former Washington Post President and Publisher Philip L. Graham once famously said that journalism is the first rough draft of history.

Journalists serve as the witnesses to those events, conveying stories with both words and pictures. These stories provide information of high news value to an audience that did not attend the event but still needs or wants clear and accurate information about it.

This lesson plan focuses on visual storytelling skills for the student photojournalist. It is designed to be delivered in 1 x 90-minute class however, it has the flexibility to be delivered in sections over several shorter class periods. It focuses on both news judgment and narrative storytelling techniques required to create a dynamic, accurate and clear photo essay.

Students will hear a lecture; participate in a large group discussion as they view and assess photo essays to hone visual news judgment skills; and complete an assessment/assignment outside of class time to demonstrate mastery of photojournalism skills as they create a 10-image photo essay.

This product includes a 10-page lesson plan and a 24-slide PPT template, with:
• Detailed lecture notes
