    1. I'd say that this is more of a memoir than a how-to book for teaching photography to disadvantaged kids. The author is an important name in the history of the participatory photography movement and shares her philosophy & experience in that, along with a very brief description of her teaching process. Ultimately, the book helps not with methodological insight (for that, see Getty Museum's online publications), but with the feeling that there's nothing too technical or methodologically compli [...]

    3. Written by the well-respected photography educator, Wendy Ewald, this book is a fascinating look into the power of photography & literacy programs to help children explore and express their identities, values, and dreams while developing their self-esteem, critical thinking skills, and capacity for empathy. Though I couldn't help but miss my Salvadoran photography students while reading this book, I consider it a truly inspiring resource that I will continue to reference.

    4. Wendy is an inspiration. I've used her methods with yearbook club and in the classroom for poetry projects. Her book was the source of inspiration for a week-long literacy exploration at NCCAT through Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies. She shares a passion for life through the lens of a camera and the magic of expression through printed images. LOVE her and her work.
