Watsons Story Arc Photo Essay

Students in the Grade 5 Navigate read The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis. It was a powerful read! We wanted to capture the spirit of the story in a deeper way, so we created these photo essays. How did we do it?

  • We each developed a set of plot points to summarize the novel
  • We came up with a singular word – an idea, theme or emotion – to summarize each plot point
  • We took our own photographs to symbolize each concept.

Below are the projects from the students. Enjoy!
