This past Friday and Saturday, March 18 and 19 Katie Hyde, Director of Literacy Through Photography at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies, was at Moore for a 2-day workshop for Moore Art Education faculty and students who will be participating in our program this fall and beyond.
Katie shared recent work from Tanzania where LTP is currently being introduced to schools in Arusha and took us through sample lessons based on LTP that have been used in classrooms in Durham schools. Not only are these intensive workshops a wonderful opportunity to learn hands-on how to apply LTP teaching tools in your classroom, but they allow for teachers and students to work collaboratively, learn from one another and share best practices, and just as importantly, learn more about one another.
Katie’s work with Moore teachers and students has been crucial to shaping LTP: The Philadelphia Project, and after this weekend I am thrilled to continue work on establishing our LTP program at Moore. Below are photos from our workshop and feature in-classroom work as well as documentation of our time spent photographing in the city…enjoy!
