Model Assignments

  1. Document a Community Practice, Ritual or Event
  2. Show a Process
  3. Lead a Social Media Campaign
  4. Reinvent the class trip

These four model assignments can be adapted to different courses with a variety of learning goals. Check your syllabus for your course learning outcomes to figure out a way to engage photography as a tool and process to center student participation and creative expression. Building and expanding on these assignments can be done through using Backward design template.

Summer institute participants can recieve feedback on their assignment design synchronously through zoom or asynchronously through the shared google drive. Please contact Sakina @
