Finding Student Voices: Teaching Photography in a Choice Environment


Finding Student Voices: Teaching Photography in a Choice Environment
Wednesday, August 10 
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers

How do you give learners ownership in developing a personal visual voice that is inspired by what interests them in their world? Intrigue them through carefully formulated questions and choice challenges that guide them to the discovery of their own “big ideas.” They will come away thinking like a professional photographer and creating meaningful works of art.
