For the Outside Learning portion of your grade, you’ll need to attain ten points throughout the term. You can select events from those I post (or submit your own 72 hours in advance for approval) and you will need to send in a 200-300 word summation of the event within 24 hours. Your summation should be a synopsis of what your learned along with how you could apply the information to a photo assignment or photojournalism career.
