Essential Lens: Analyzing Photographs Across Curriculum

Photographs are powerful resources in K-12 classrooms, and can be used to help young learners engage with unfamiliar subjects and time periods, participate in critical discussions, and build their inference skills. Annenberg Learner offers a number of resources, developed by a group of photography and educational experts, for incorporating photographs into middle and high school social studies, language arts, or science classrooms. At the heart of this website are eleven curated collections of photographs relating to a number of themes, which instructors can find under the Collections tab. These themes include Change and Resistance: Civil Rights Movements Across the Nation; Genetics and Bioengineering: the Societal Impact of Mutations; and Immigration, Urbanization, and Identity: The Progressive Era Cities. Each of these collections is accompanied by a number of Learning Objectives, Essential Questions, and Learning Activities. In addition, this website features five videos designed to help instructors integrate photographs into their curriculum and a guide ("Focus In") of how teachers might model photograph analysis to young learners.
