Unit 5: Set 1. The Great War, A Photo Essay - Activity 2

Unit Introduction | Essay Introduction | Activity 1 | Activity 2

Consider the role of letters, diaries, notes, and photographs in recording history.  The person who writes the letters or takes the photographs has some intent in mind.  The person who later views these documents sees something a little different. 

Consider making a photo essay of your town, your family, or your school.  Type captions for each picture.  What do you consider important?  What will people in the future be looking for when they view your pictures and read your captions?  Will they understand what you want them to know?
