Students will use historic and archival images to engage in topics of identity, relationships and friendships. They will analyze the role of photography in creating a historical perspective of individuals and events and discuss how technology has changed this dynamic. They will translate visual information in text and vice versa.
This lesson plan was created during United Photo Industries’ 2017 Education Day. Many thanks to the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment for supporting UPI Education!
