Here is another of the schemes of work that I have used with my year 10 photographers. I have run this project in the Spring term once students have a solid understanding of using the DSLR camera and the various photographic techniques that they will need in this project.
The project is written around visits to London city centre and Kingston upon Thames, but these could easily be swapped to suit your local area. The project culminates in students creating their own hand made coffee table style book.

I have just updated my GCSE Photography guides that I give to students to support their work. They now show more clearly the different levels of complexity within each task, so I expect ALL students to complete the green statements/questions, MOST students to complete the orange statements/questions and SOME students might attempt the blue statements/questions.
I hope that this will both support my lower level students and push my middling to higher students.

Each half term and end of term I set a school wide photography challenge, these usually consist of a set of 20 to 25 words that students have to capture in a photograph. I have found it has been a really great way to promote the subject across the school and get students thinking creativity during the break. Once the students return their images I have the head decide on a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and any highly commended images, these students (and sometimes staff) then receive certificates and prizes that are handed out in assembly.
Below I have added small selection of images that I have received from past competitions:
I have been updating my school Photography department website and it now has all the resources uploaded for the Year 10 Alive! Photography/Animation project.
This project lasted 6 weeks (I have three 1 hour sessions a week).

This term I have spent working thorough the basis of using the DSLR camera. Hopefully this should give my GCSE Photography class a solid understanding of the basics, such as shutter speed, aperture, ISOs, composition etc, before they undertake more project/theme based work later this term.
I have uploaded all of my lesson Powerpoints to the department website which is here:

As you can see from my last post I am in full resource making mode now the summer holidays are nearly over I am trying to get my Department Photography Website finished. I am very nearly there and just need to complete a couple of pages.
I will be adding my class presentations, student work and their websites as the year progresses so keep checking back for updates!
