Grade Levels of Activities
The photographic analysis forms will help students read the photographs artistically and historically.
The teacher should lead the first analysis to guide students through one image then let pairs of
students try their hand at it. When students are accustomed to the method, they should be able to do
it independently, perhaps even as a life skill for enjoyment and research. The older the students and
the more practiced they become, the more in depth they will be able to discuss their results.
The hands-on camera activities may need the assistance of a camera club volunteer in your area.
Many are experienced in helping novices use cameras and compose photographs artistically.
Kodak's Web site has an educational section with lesson plans and camera
advice for student use.
