One of my eighth grade students Erin H.’s photo “Exit” has been selected by Frank Goodyear (Assistant Curator of Photography at the National Portrait Gallery) for inclusion in VisArts‘ upcoming exhibition “How You See It.” Ninety-eight students from Maryland and DC submitted more than 160 photos, and Erin’s was one of only 20 that were chosen. Nice work, Erin!
“How You See It” is a juried exhibition of photography, including work by high-school and middle-school students in or around Washington.
Selected works will be printed and hung in the VisArts Portfolio Gallery from March 10 to May 23, 2009.
My students at CES learn photography and imaging skills as part of the school’s Technology Program. In addition to photographing , journaling, and producing the school yearbook, my 8th grade students are also publishing an online journal of writings and images.

Today, my 8th graders posted several paragraphs to their Online Yearbook that describe people that have influenced their lives here at CES, or have been memorable in some way. Thought you might be interested in reading what they have written… see http://cesyearbook.blogspot.com/
Oh, by the way…they weren’t allowed to use the words “I” or “me” when writing their paragraphs, nor were they allowed to name the person.
Well, the graders at my school aren’t actually being recycled…
They are recycling here at school AND have shared with us all a terriffic slide show of their field trip to the Recycling Center. Check it out on the lower school technology teacher’s newsletter Lower School Computer Lab Showcase.
