    I love this link. http://www.learner.org/resources/series223.html

    1. A Closer Look
    This introduction to the course models the process of analyzing photographs with teachers and students. Photography historian Makeda Best discusses the Focus In method with teachers, and educator Julie Keefe employs the method with students at a photography exhibit on "light and dark." Photography curator at the Portland Art Museum, Julia Dolan discusses how she carefully selects a set of photographs to tell a larger story. Go to this unit.

    2. Witness

    Photographs bear witness to world events and help us to learn more about people, places, and situations -- historical and present day. Middle school teacher Donald Rose guides students in analyzing photos from school integration movements of the 1960s. Documentary film producer Ken Burns weaves photographs into historical narratives to bring the past to life. Photojournalist Louie Palu's photos take us deep into mines and war zones, and engage us with the individuals who take on those tasks. Go to this unit.

    3. Lives

    Lives explores the story of human resilience and perseverance. Middle school teacher Donald Rose uses the Migrant Mother photos by Depression-era photographer Dorothea Lange to help students understand what elements a photographer chooses to focus on to create the greatest impact. Historian Linda Gordon, biographer of FSA photographer Dorothea Lange reveals Lange's role in engaging Americans in the plight of those who were most devastated. New Orleans documentary photographers Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick talk about the transformation of their photographs after Hurricane Katrina and working with young photographers to preserve the city's cultural heritage. Go to this unit.

    4. Evidence

    An image can show us otherwise invisible processes, previously undiscovered life forms, and dramatic change over time. High school teacher Rima Givot engages her students with highly magnified photos of mouse muscle to study genetically modified organisms. Scientist and photomicrographer Dennis Kunkel demonstrates the fascinating process of creating photographs of the microscopic world. Environmental photographer Gary Braasch reports on his worldwide travels to document the state of the planet through repeat photography. Go to this unit.

    [​IMG]
    5. Story

    Every photograph tells a story: of struggle, of beauty, of community and culture. Social studies teacher Kim Kanof uses photos from the Protests and Politics collection to teach about protests around in the world in 1968. National Geographicphoto editor Pamela Chen details the collaborative process of creating photo-based feature stories with design director David Whitmore. Iowa photographer Danny Wilcox Frazier discusses his work documenting the residents and images of marginalized communities across the United States. Go to this unit.

    Hope others find the educational resources within this unit - I love it, and I hope at least some of you will enjoy.

    http://thinkearth.org/my/index.php This currently works for K-4, with the promise of going up to 9th grade in the near future. If the upper grade levels are as good as the current lower grade levels, it is worth knowing about.

    Another find that I truly love. Thinking outside of the box, being creative - we should all love this! I SO want to do this, but can't play the clarinet. What is a science teacher to do???

    Yep, physics my LEAST favorite subject, but this makes sense to me, and I think my students would agree.

    I can say that on the day I share, the link is good and working. I hate trying to access promising sounding links, only to find out that they go nowhere.

    On the day these links are posted, ALL links worked. I, too, hate to find out that I can't get from the promise to the reality. Obviously, the links that are funded by large agencies and organizations are apt to stay valid longer than one to a small blog, but on the day they are posted, I have actually used the link to visit the site, see what is there, and whether or not I think there is useful material for teachers.
