Literacy & Justice Through Photography

LJTP encourages students to find their voice through photographs and written text. Photography as a medium of communication is particularly accessible to children. The students photograph scenes from their lives and these images become the catalyst for subsequent written investigation of self, community, family, and dreams. Students represent themselves with photographs and words while increasing their means of expression.

UW students will explore the principles and practice of LJTP themselves during the seminar and facilitate the curriculum in an elementary or middle school classroom. There will be a culminating show of UW and John Rogers work with all students coming to the UW.

Seminars will be held each Tuesday from 10:30 – 12:00. Students will travel to John Rogers Elementary on Thursdays. Transportation will be provided. Vehicles will leave campus at 10:30 and return by 12:20.

There are a limited number of spaces available for this program. For questions about this seminar and placements, contact Christine Stickler at castick@uw.edu.
