Every Picture Tells a Story
This session focuses on helping young people to extrapolate information from pictures and to search for meaning beyond the literal.
It aims to develop media literacy and asks the question, can we always believe what we see? Students are encouraged to engage with, interpret and evaluate photographic images and their use as sources of historical evidence. They will debate to what extent images we see today, on the internet, on TV or in print are accurate and to what extent we might need to question and interpret what we see. In a world of #fakenews this session helps students develop the skills needed to critically evaluate information sources.
All sessions last approximately 90 minutes for groups of up to 40 students (unless otherwise stated). Large groups between 40-80 students require sessions to be extended to 120 mins. For groups of more than 80 students, please contact us to discuss options.
This session costs £5.50 per child with a minimum price of £150 per group. Accompanying adults are free. To book, please download our schools booking form here, re-upload and send back to us using the form below or email us using the contact form.
