Motivation:       screen or Smartboard. Hand out a few paper copies if you don’t have access to either.
                  -The students will need to take photos at some point and learning some basic
                  techniques beforehand will help when that time comes. They may just want to know so
                  they can pursue photography on their own as well.
Pre-assessment    10-15 min
                  -Look at the list and determine which techniques the students need or want to work on.
                  -Ask students if they are knowledgeable about any of the terms or techniques. If they
                  are, ask them to explain it to the other club members. They should use a camera to
                  demonstrate as they explain.
                  -They may want to watch the video clip for that tip to check their understanding after
                  the explanation.
Activity:         20-30 min
                  -Look at the remainder of the tips on the list and come to a consensus about which ones
                  the club would like to learn.
                  -The links on the Photography Tips document are live and should open an internet
                  browser when Ctrl-clicked. The Tips come from Black’s Photography, a trusted site.
                  --The video clips are short (2-4 min), well produced, and easy to follow.
                  -Students should try each technique immediately after viewing document and video clip
                  if possible
                  -Discuss what they learned and how it might be applied in different situations
                  -Watch another video tip, try it out, and discuss.
                  -The club can always look at tips they didn’t get to today on another day!

Wrap-up:          -Students can brainstorm on how they can use what they learned today and what future
