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.
