On Sight

Lesson 17

CONTEXT: Book Dummies and Meeting an Editor

In lesson seventeen, teachers are asked to invite a guest editor—an artist, a photo editor from a magazine or nearby newspaper, a local professional photographer— to the class. The guest editor will give a presentation on book sequencing, share their favorite photobooks, and discuss how the order of photographs can affect their meaning. With the help of the guest editor, students will use printouts of their images to begin sequencing their work in a way that communicates an idea or feeling about their chosen theme.
