Traveling to the Past: Trick Photography for Historians & Writers

Grades Covered: 5-8
Subjects Covered: History, Photography, Writing

Paige Whelan

In this workshop, participants learn how to take their class on a trip to the past through “trick photography,” a process where students use free web or tablet-based technology to sneak posed photographs of themselves into historical images. This easy-to-learn strategy engages the selfie generation in the research of primary sources, building their empathy for the historical figures and everyday people who lived before them. Participants should bring their tablet or a laptop and camera for this exciting hands-on workshop!
