The English III classes and the U.S. History classes teach thematically. The
themes we've employed this year are Manifest Destiny, American Dream, and
American Identity. In our American Identity unit in English class, we will
look at The Sweet Flypaper of Life, which is comprised of photographs by Roy
DeCarava and text by Langston Hughes. One of our art teachers will teach a
mini-lesson on photographic technique, then students will chronicle their
lives -- their families, their neighborhoods, their school -- with
photographs, then provide a narrative that connects their photographs.
Just an idea. Let me know what you think.
