For a long-term project, the author challenged her students to photograph themselves each day for fourteen days using a theme. She asked them to think about how the final work would influence the viewer to understand who they are. Students first had to write a proposal for their idea, including what type of lighting, props, and ideas they were going to use. Each student had to express a reason for photographing and presenting their ideas as they did. Writing, which helps students process their ideas, was included in the form of a proposal and final assessment for technical and conceptual ideas. (Contains 1 resource.)
