For each of the eight parts of speech, a photography assignment can be administered.

Nouns - person, place or thing
Students will take a photo of:
A person - portrait photography
A place - landscape photography
A thing - still life photography

This could be broken down even further to have students take a photograph of a concrete noun and then an abstract noun (this, of course, would be their interpretation of abstract noun).

Verbs - action or linking
Any physical event - for a school setting, sports are excellent for photographing action shots
Linking verbs would be a bit more abstract when it comes to the photography assignment

Each of the eight parts of speech can be linked to a style of photography, this lesson is truly hands-on learning for the students, and they can relate to the assignments.

Each student in today's society usually has access to a camera or camera phone. However, the DIgital Wish package would make this lesson a reality for all our students.

This lesson could be expanded to include literature, social studies, science, math, character education, or art. It is limitless what can be taught through photography.
