A fresh, exciting approach to photography which sparks children’s thinking and encourages learning through wonder, curiosity and conversation.
Picture magic offers teachers a wealth of support in using photography to inspire and teach during the early and primary years, with a focus on questioning, inquiry, conversation, critical thinking, teaching strategies, lesson ideas and practical examples.
The book is separated into two sections: ‘The thinking bit’ outlines helpful, effective ideas and strategies, and ‘The doing bit’ provides clear advice on how to put these ideas into practice.
The two sections are divided into chapters, each exploring a different approach or strategy. Chapters outline fundamentals such as:
- questioning and inquiry
- critical thinking
- thinking frameworks and strategies.
Picture magic also includes lesson ideas and lesson examples.
‘A highly professional and delightful resource.’
