This Digital Photography Club is capturing memories, building self-pride, and a viable skill! Our Exceptional needs students enjoy learning through real-world experiences, visual applications, and physical movement. Also, our students with Specific Learning Disabilities are partnered with a student in general education to grow and learn the Art of Digital Photography. Most of them are overcoming a reading deficit or a deficit in basic math concepts. These boys and girls are hard workers and are filled with determination. They are eager to learn and apply strategies that they find the most useful to help them learn and demonstrate mastery. They are a part of an inner city elementary/ middle school where the population is about 900 and 95 percent are from low-income households.
My students have expressed an interest and willingness to learn the fundamentals of digital photography. The cameras and photography guide books that we are requesting are for beginners and advanced digital photography enthusiasts. They will be great tools to build upon the knowledge and skills that they are currently learning via the internet and basic application practices thus far. My students are primarily using cellular phones to capture photos. Having real cameras will build self-confidence and skill.
My students have learned photography techniques such as portraits, bursts, landscapes, and the Rule of Thirds.
They are so excited about applying these techniques as well as capturing a moment in time. The Digital cameras will be used inside and outside of the classroom to explore the wonderful wildlife that we often overlook. Our photography club is the first of its kind at our school.
