Using Photographs to Teach Social Justice | Teaching Tolerance

Using Photographs to Teach Social Justice | Teaching Tolerance | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 26, 2013 8:11 AM

Each lesson in the series builds background knowledge about a particular social justice issue and addresses at least one English language arts skill. The lesson objectives also promote critical thinking skills. Here are some of the issues and skills addressed in the lessons:

  • understand that people experience injustices
  • understand why and how people take action to address injustice
  • recognize how experiences are shaped by membership in groups defined by race, gender, socioeconomic status, culture, ethnicity, ability
  • recognize how the historical moment and the social context shape experience
  • develop empathy for people whose experiences differ from their own.

They should also help students “read” photographs by getting them to:

  • describe what they see in a photograph;
  • understand that photographs are not merely reflections of reality, but mediated images that convey many meanings;
  • see that photographs have both denotative meanings (those that are literal) and connotative meanings (those that are constructed through individual and collective associations);
  • understand the importance of the context in which a photograph was taken, and determine how specific photographs fit into the context in which they were taken;
  • identify the mood of a photograph and determine what elements contribute to creating that mood;
  • analyze color, light and shadow, and how they contribute to a photograph’s meanings;
  • analyze the composition of photographs, including how photographers shape meaning by choosing how to crop images;
  • identify a photograph’s point of view.

The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius

The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
It’s one of the most talked-about trends in education right now. Right behind the iPad and Common Core. Flipping your classroom is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. That’s great, because it offers a lot of advantages for your classroom regardless of your students’ age or what subject matter you’re presenting in your classroom. If you’re new to the concept, flipping your classroom can feel a little bit overwhelming: How much should I switch around? What is best for the classroom vs at home? Why am I doing this again anyway?

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it

Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level  you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, so your expectations and your teaching approach may differ quite noticeably from your colleagues. But the nagging question still remains for many teachers – what exactly is digital literacy?
