Part 3

  • Ask students to recall what was discussed in Part 2
  • Ask students to read the American Photo Mag article in pairs and complete the “Witness for the World” handout as they read. Provide handouts of the article, or have students read it on their computers and/or phones.
  • Assignment:Tell students that they will now become photojournalists, like Ruth Gruber. Instruct them to take pictures during the week: at home, at school (when allowed), during time with friends, at services (when appropriate) etc. Tell them to think about taking photos that are overtly “Jewish” as well as those that may not be
    • Students should email their favorite pictures (no more than five) of that week to the instructor BEFORE the next class.

Tell them to be creative and open to lots of photographic opportunities and that they can use filters or other effects if desired
