Picturing Social Justice STEM Integrated Project
In this unit, students will use techniques in digital photography to research, generate and identify a relevant social justice issue. In the understanding of digital resolution for the web and print, students will explore the relationship between pixels and vectors; apply their knowledge of area and the unit square; and will explore reproduction using scale factor, proportions, congruence, and similarity concepts.
In addition to the CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in Math and English Language Arts (ELA) that supplement the primary core area of study.
The structure of this unit and the materials contained within it were created by Liz Moore (CTE), Dawn Guest-Johnson (Math), and Michelle Goodman (ELA) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Specialist Gregg Witkin.
