“Slides” and “Photographs”
The students will produce prose and poetry from the photographs and slides taken in and about New Haven. The visual aids represent New Haven neighborhoods, Edgewood Park, Goffe Street Park, People in New Haven, Monuments and Statues in New Haven, Long Wharf, buildings, construction, etc.
Like an artist who uses subjects to help him create images on canvas, the students will use these visual aids to paint pictures with words. The efforts of this assignment will result in the production of a literary work much like
The Sweet Flypaper of Life
*At the end of this unit the students’ work will be placed on display for school-wide viewing. The students will also submit their writings to the school literary magazine.
