This teaching collection includes photographs of China during the first half of the twentieth century by different photographers. First analyze a photograph answering the questions on the handout -- just by looking closely. Then, open the label for the photograph and add additional information. Next, discuss the point of view of the photographer based on your analysis. Finally, research the photographer to learn more about her or her perspective. Why is it important to investigate a topic from more than one perspective?
