Literacy through Photography

Literacy instruction by using photography can help encourage students to explore voice using images and the written word.  When you use photographs in your instruction and throughout your curriculum, each image can become a catalyst for writing exercises that you use in your classroom. You can identify themes that your students can explore, such as family and community, to help provide a window into their lives and open doors to the world around them.
