Elaine LaMarre

To help alternative education students explore the artistic aspects of photography, Ms. LaMarre and her partners develop a nature photography project that incorporates science, writing, research, and self-exploration. Students are introduced to photography and scrapbook design, editing and printing techniques, and reflect on how forces of nature are similar to internal conflict. Students also research a community environment problem by taking photographs. Students create presentations including digital slide shows for parents and friends as a final project.
