RE: need ideas for special students

What if the guys had input on the 'arrangement' of the picture taken. They could arrange action figures or any items and specify the kind of shot they have in mind. Perhaps a triipod could help here so that the assistant could set up the camera on the compostition, then the 'artist ' could check thru the viewfinder to be sure that things look as desired.

        Subject: need ideas for special students

        A colleague who is a photography teacher came to me this morning in a
        quandry. She has been assigned 2 students who are physically incapable of
        holding a camera. At least one of the boys is very bright and has an
        assistant. The other I don't know about developmentally. She asked me for
        suggestions of things these kids to do that would some how be related to
        visual art, if not photography per se. The first thing I suggested was the
        prints that can be done on treated paper or fabric (like blue print paper)
        and placed in the sun. Computers might be an option, but we don't think they
        have the hand/arm strength to even do that. Transferring them out of the
        class is not an option. Please help-any and all ideas for lessons,
        websites, resources will be appreciated. If anyone can help, you all can.
        Thanks much-Linda in NC
