Abstract

Informed by the literature on community arts, critical pedagogy, and visual literacy, this thesis serves to summarize and analyze the teaching project I undertook for my thesis research. PhotoLit was a youth photography and creative writing workshop that I facilitated with a group of ten young people who recently immigrated to Toronto. The program aimed to engage the youth with creative means of expressing themselves and provide them with the tools and skills to think critically about their surroundings. PhotoLit was centred on the themes of self, family, and community. I used action research and reflective practice methodology to examine and improve my teaching practice.
