On Sight

Lesson 18

CONTEXT: Words and Pictures

Ram Prakash Singh with His Elephant Shyama, Great Golden Circus, Ahmedabad, India 1990

Lesson eighteen introduces students to the different caption forms that can accompany images, including picture titles, narrative captions, additive captions, and text. Using blank book dummies, students have the opportunity to place their images, along with written text, in the sequence they created in the previous lesson. This process encourages students to think about their photographs in book form, allowing them to make changes to the sequence and write text before the final version is made.
