Teaching idea: frieze frame

17th September 2004 at 01:00
Less ambitious than the New Heys method (see story above) but still a potent way of recording a school field trip is this cross-curricular project. Students plan a journey from the city (or town) centre to the periphery to illustrate changes in the urban landscape. For example, it might highlight shopping areas, parks, business sectors, changes in architecture. This involves map skills. For the trip, students are given disposable cameras to take pictures which sum up each area. The emphasis can be as much on visual communication as geography. Back at school, they develop a frieze which can be used by all students.
