OUTLINE of key events (_30_ minutes)

[I Do/We Do] Discuss how the following questions can help us
think about justice for everyone. Tell students that to understand
justice, we must understand the follow question.
in what ways are people alike?
In what ways are they different?
How can photographs challenge stereotypes?
How do photographs show activism and

Once the above questions have been discussed by myself as well as

by student in small groups, we are going to do the following activities.

1. Explore ways in which people are alike and

ways in which they are different
Take turns saying something that you see in the photo. Dont
analyze it at this stage; just say what you see,

2. analyze photographs that show people with

different abilities and of different ages
How does the photo make you feel? Go around the table and have
everyone answer the question, explaining what it is in the photo
that evokes those feelings.
3. question stereotypes about ability and age
What stereotypes have you heard about age? Go around your
table and say them. They may be stereotypes that youve heard
about people your age or about people in other age groups. What
stereotypes do these photos contradict? How do they do so?
4. recognize that photographs are socially
constructed representations of reality
What can you infer from what youve seen? For example, in what
setting do you think the photograph was taken? Why do you think
so? What, if anything, do you think the people in the photo have in
common? Why do you think so? What do you think the
photographer was aiming to show?
5. explain how a photographs construction can
shape a viewers reaction to it
Begin by cutting out a picture frame from a piece of paper. Place it
in different ways on the photo to see what it would look like if the
photographer had made other choices
What if he took a photo that only had in it the woman in the front-
center holding the sign that says BUDGET CUTS MEAN I SIT AT
HOME? How would such a photo affect you? What if he took a
close-up of just her face, without the sign or any indication that she
is sitting in a wheelchair?
CLOSING (___ minutes)
How would you, as a photographer, show age and ability,
as well as similarities and differences?
Plan the photo and describe it.
Write an explanation of what your photo shows regarding
age, ability, similarity and difference.
