The Simple Camera and the Teacher of English.
Lewis, J. Richard
Maryland English Journal, v9 n1 p11-14 F 1970
The availability of 72 inexpensive (50 cents each) still cameras and 200 rolls of film (19 cents per roll) to 70 English teachers in Frederick County, Maryland, has provided the means of stimulating students to expand their understanding of the environment and to sharpen their communicative talents. Projects undertaken include the students' use of these cameras for (1) exploring (while studying a media unit) the effect of pictures in investigating a subject and imparting information; (2) illustrating research papers; (3) describing a process (i.e., how to clean a gun) without using words; and (4) making a college of photographs and magazine cutouts to describe their families, their friends, or themselves.
