Just Like When. A Collection of Stories by New Writers Inspired by Photographs.
Perry, Carrie; And Others
This publication contains the stories of seven African-American students in the literacy class at the Council for Senior Citizens in Warrenton, North Carolina. The stories were inspired by photographs selected from photographic books with images of African Americans in familiar settings, particularly rural settings. Autobiographical information about the authors accompanies each selection. Titles are as follows: "Gettin' Baptized,""Making Quilts,""Good Old Mule,""Death in the Family,""Community Elders,""Fishing Story," and "The Mule." Following the stories is an article, "Using Photographs to Inspire Writing and Create Learning Experiences" by Jereann King. A detailed description of the process covers prewriting discussion and activities, writing, postwriting discussion, developing activities, and evaluation discussion. A sample lesson with photograph follows. (YLB)
