Camera Journal Empathy Activity

I asked a student in the high school to document her day in pictures and then interviewed her on the experience.

Hi Sarah
This sounds like a fun project, although if I were the student I think I would have had to set an alarm to remember to take photos every hour :-)
I am sure the interview was interesting - I wonder what the difference would have been if you had asked the students to take pictures throughout the day and pick out the 12 most interesting/important ones to them, regardless of the time of day? (you might have got 12 dog pictures though!)
I agree with Rachels comment below that sometimes one simple question can be the one that allows a student to open up and feel that they are in a safe space to share their more inner feelings.
