Photo Projects

Teachers practiced photo essays in a visual literacy assignment. Here are a few that really worked.


Mr. Mom

Video Production teacher Matthew Brown had the following to say about this photo essay: “Our household is in the middle of a transition. I now work full time and my wife is now working only part-time. For three years I have been at home with my kids being Mr. Mom. It has been an amazing experience and I miss it more than I thought I would. I started taking pictures of things I don't miss like laundry and dirty faces but chose the pictures that remind me of what I loved about the time I had being a part-time teacher and a full time dad. I realized while taking these photos that having a family not only takes up my time and energy but dominates my table, floor, and tub.”

Staging Cyrano de Bergerac

Theatre and Film Studies teacher Bradley Moss writes the following about this photo essay: “The following pictures show aspects of an educational theatre program that I, as a teacher, am very familiar with. Students are not seen much because I did not want to disrupt the rehearsal process. Here is our space, our resources, and our work that, over the course of six weeks, will result in a staging of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac.
