|*Next Summer Workshop
- June 2007*
Future Focus is a hands-on program that uses photography to develop
and enhance students' writing skills and sense of self. Students
learn how to use the camera as a means of expressing themselves
by describing their lives, their families, their communities, and
their dreams. Through various assignments, students create a self-portrait,
a family portrait, and a portrait of their
dreams. A writing assignment accompanies each photograph.
Throughout the program, students make interdisciplinary connections
between subjects like writing, math, and science.
