Teacher's Guide for Photographic Discourse: A Strategies for Media Literacy Guide for Understanding Photographs.
Nolker, Page; Tyner, Kathleen
This guide is designed to promote discussion of any photograph with students, whether encountered in the classroom, in textbooks, or in other school materials. The guide contains a one-page handout which uses Dorothea Lange's photograph "White Angel Breadline" to discuss 10 photographic elements: aesthetic elements, punctum, title, photographer, ownership, intent, historical context, genre, emotion, and framing. The guide offers a handout presenting these same 10 elements for analysis, but with a blank space in which any photograph may be inserted. The teacher's guide to the handouts explains their use and presents an analysis of Lange's photograph. (SR)
