EDUC 401 G: Literacy Through Photography

  • SLN: 14166
  • Date: TBD, depending on student availability
  • Location: TBD
  • Facilitator: Christine Stickler, castick@uw.edu

Literacy Through Photography (LTP) encourages students to find their voice through photographs and written text. Photography as a medium of communication is particularly accessible to children. The students photograph scenes from their lives and these images become the catalyst for subsequent written investigation of self, community, family, and dreams. Students represent themselves with photographs and words while increasing their means of expression.

UW Students will explore the principles and practice of LTP themselves during the seminar and facilitate the curriculum in an elementary or middle school classroom. There will be a culminating show of student work with all students coming to the UW.

There are a limited number of spaces available for the program. For questions about this seminar and placements, contact Christine Stickler at castick@uw.edu.
