Deb Curtis, in her book, Really Seeing Children, talks about how she solved her dilemma of having an over-abundance of photos of children. “For a while, I was taking so many photos I didn’t know what to do with them until I decided to use photos to tell stories of children and their work,” she writes. “While contemplating which photos to use for the stories, I discovered that if I studied them carefully, I could learn so much more about children’s ideas and points of view.
I’ve since been re-focusing the photos to highlight aspects I want to see more clearly. I crop the photos by cutting out the background, and then enlarge the elements I want to emphasize…When you examine these elements, you can clearly see the intelligence, skill, and serious intent children bring to their work.”
Educators have the opportunity to slow down, observe, delight, and practice really seeing children every day. In her new book, Really Seeing Children, Deb Curtis offers a wealth of ideas to help teachers and parents see with fresh eyes.
