7 Day Photo Challenge Recap
As I started this process the idea of having to take a photo every week seemed daunting and almost impossible. What photos am I supposed to take? Who wants to see what I produce? It was not until I came up with a theme for my photos that I actually became excited about the seven day photo challenge. With the idea of the Cold War in mind I started looking for ideas that would creatively express the changing state of this idea. For each day of this challenge I took a number of pictures and then sat down the next and picked the one that I could make allegorical references off of. This assignment truly was an opportunity to analyze and really develop my understanding of the Cold War. For this I choose to post the pictures and descriptions in chronological order because they are telling a story. I know that it really should occur in reverse order, but for this idea and descriptions I just did not think it would work. After completing this process, this is definitely an activity that I want to use with my students and I hope you can see the educational benefits that it presents.
