Photo essays can document many things, including a historical event, a family's history, science experiments, observations in nature, journeys, field trips, and personal experiences and interests. When children create photo essays, they are able to communicate their experiences and thoughts in an authentic and very personal way. "Telling Stories With Photo Essays" offers teachers ways to involve children in creating photo essays and discusses the role photography can play in allowing children to communicate their ideas, experiences, and emotions. Educators will discover how to give children the creative means for: capturing the aesthetics in their environment; documenting historical events as well as their own stories and histories; recording what they are learning; and, becoming advocates for causes they believe in as they explore the concept of being responsible citizens.
