Students examine sociopolitical issues through photography
Students at a Colorado high school recently created artwork that incorporated original digital photos to express their ideas about sociopolitical issues. Art teacher Susan Koehler launched the project with the help of a $1,000 grant that paid for digital cameras for the students to use. "I learned a lot about my classmates and the community," one student said. "I learned a lot more from everybody else's assignments than I learned from my own -- what my classmates' opinions are and other issues there that I didn't think about." Details here.
