History of Photography

Journalism 1

We started the second six-week grading period today. After weeks of writing, usually, J1 students are excited to start something new. And they love photography. I don’t know that they love the history lessons here at the start, but when we get to taking photos, they enjoy it. I start the unit by showing the History Channel’s history of photography. I have the students follow along with this video guide. I follow up with a quiz. The major takeaway is George Eastman and Kodak. If you’re ever in Rochester, New York, go see Eastman’s mansion!
