In the second edition of Picture This, the author explores the expanded photography options that are now available for enriching early childhood instruction. Children are thrilled when they see themselves in pictures, and this book shows teachers how to place them at the center of an exciting visual learning process.
Written in a user-friendly format and filled with illustrations, the book provides field-tested and developmentally appropriate photography activities across 10 subject areas, including emerging literacy, physical development, sensory exploration, social studies, math/science, and drama. Each activity offers an objective and description and can be adapted for independent exploration, one-on-one instruction, small groups, and family involvement. Three new chapters discuss:
- Ongoing student assessment, the use of standards, and systematic documentation
- Activities for children with special needs
- The use of photography with toddlers
Enrich your early childhood curriculum and fully engage young children through the fascinating world of digital photography.
