Photography

Unit

Grade

In Grade 9 Multimedia students will be able to explore


some basic concepts that will lead into Multimedia 10, 11,
and 12. This course is meant for students to explore
interests involved in all aspects of Multimedia. When
students enter into CTS they will be able to choose streams
from Audio/Video, Photography, and Digital Design, so to
Estimated
complement all of these streams there will be elements
11 hours
Time
from each involved in this course.

Description

The first stream will be Photography, where students will


have the chance to explore the basics of Photography and
see if it is something they may wish to continue in CTS and
even later on in life.

All CTF learning outcomes should be addressed in each CTF challenge.

Description

Description &
Rationale

Occupational
Areas

One of the main components of multimedia is Photography. This is seen in the


CTS occupational area of Communication Technology where Photography
modules are a huge part. This Unit is meant to have students explore the
basics of photography and see if it would be something they would want to
discover further in CTS.

Literacy Benchmarks:

Numeracy Benchmarks:

I understand that being literate empowers me to


successfully communicate with others, achieve
personal goals, and make local and global connections.
Students will be using multiple forms of literacy to
plan, create, implement, and Photo albums

I willingly use numeracy to make sense of the world


and communicate accurately with others. Students will
represent information through their plan, photos and
reflection. They will not have to many or too little
photos

I consistently adjust language registers and, as

I move with ease and fluidity between different

audiences, purposes and contexts, and respond in
ways to show that I value and respect others
contributions, ideas and points of view. Students will
need to be aware of other cultural practices to ensure
that their photos are not offensive to certain people or
inappropriate to the school
I explore and understand how diverse modes and
media effectively represent or reframe experiences,
concepts and understandings. Students will be using
multiple means of representation through their
pictures
I access personal experiences and background
knowledge related to literacy situations to address my
question, problem or curiosity, identify areas that
require further refinement and determine ways to
develop deeper knowledge or understandings.
Students will need to reflect on their own knowledge
and skills of both taking photos and justifying why the
did
I evaluate information, using a range of actions such as
identifying misconceptions, perspectives, points of
view and biases, determining the reliability, validity
and authenticity of information.
Students will ensure their photos are their own, and
that they are not taking any risky means to achieve a
great picture
I explore complex information and a wide range of
experiences to challenge assumptions, and generate
and refine ideas.
Students will incorporate relevant, meaningful
information and research into their photos and camera
assignments

representations of information to define, develop and


communicate concepts, ideas and understandings.
Students will develop and select appropriate ways to
represent numeric information to integrate with other
modes of representation.
I transfer my knowledge of patterns, number, shape,
space, statistics and probability to help me observe,
investigate and make reasoned decisions about the
world. Students will include and represent their photo
albums with elements of design
I access personal experiences and background
knowledge related to numeracy situations to address
my question, problem or curiosity, and identify areas
that require further refinement and determine ways to
develop deeper knowledge or understandings.
Students will reflect and build upon their numerical
knowledge and skills. They will need to use their prior
knowledge to fully address the challenge of finishing
the scavenger hunt project
I organize, triangulate and summarize complex,
implicit or ambiguous data from a variety of sources.
Students will construct meaning form numbers relating
to other peoples photography
I interpret statistical data and critically evaluate its
compilation to draw informed conclusions. Students
will use numerical data to research, identify, and meet
