In the Time of Trees – Photo Essay Genre


Many thanks to glassbead (Clarence Fischer) for sharing a Tweet with the link to In the Time of Trees, a beautiful photo essay. The topic is a multimodal match for NPRs This I Believe podcasts in terms of providing rich visual + text possibilities for student – and teacher – writers. Besides the slide show format, Voice Thread would be also be an effective format for an “In the time of….” photo essay genre.,29307,1731606,00.html


  1. Gail
    That is a beautiful photo essay. Really quite powerful.
    I agree that VoiceThread might be a way for students to take on such a project, and have others react, too, with reflective audio.
    Take care

  2. Thanks, Kevin. And I’ll be joining you starting today on the 31-day comment challenge.
