UCLA History and Geography Project: Geographic Literacy online lesson

Author(s): Norma Mota-Altman


This is one lesson in a series called Geographic Literacy, which is a collaborative project between The Automobile Club of Southern California and the UCLA History-Geography Project. This lesson, “Visual Literacy: Making comparisons in Our Neighborhoods: Then and Now in Alhambra and the San Gabriel Valley” is intended for students in grades 9-12 ESL and Sheltered Social Studies. It involves the students in exploring their own community to photograph locations near their school and then compare their images to historic photographs of the same spots. It also has a nice activity in which students create poems about the photos past and present.
