On Sight

Lesson 12

CONTEXT: So Many Books!

For the twelfth lesson, teachers are encouraged to bring in their favorite photobooks and hold a discussion about the different shapes, sizes, and designs of photobooks and how they work together with the images to create a visual and tactile experience. Students discover that not all photobooks are the same and that each book tells a different story. This lesson motivates students to begin thinking about their own work in its final book form.
