- Introduce tenth grade students to photographic collage.
- Accompany the teachers and their students to NYC to walk in the steps that Holden took as he made his way through Manhattan. John Madden has the route set.
- Have everyone on the trip record/make images, film, audio along the way that reflect Holden's odyssey AND also texts that represent adolescence today (graffiti, youth, street scenes, traffic, tech tools).
- Shoot images of book pages, written text, watercolor, scrunched up paper, paper towel, etc.
- Remix images, sound, and film back in the classroom in order to create art works that explore the question of (re)presentation. I had a brainstorm last night and am now wondering how the Brushes app on an iPad might help us to do the remixing work. We will explore creating using iPads, as well as Macbooks (iMovie, iPhoto and Photoshop).
- Print photographic work and ready any film/audio. Figure out how to display student work without a lot of cost:)
- Consider which finished images to use and in what order. Display finished work on internet and in a public exhibition.
- Have students author exhibition notes that are done in print and as a podcast that is uploaded to iTunes.
- Invite the public (virtual and real).
- Reconsider all of this based on feedback by John, Chris and the students.
