Into the Wild Project:
Photo Album Narrative

            A couple of weeks ago you wrote a narrative. In the Into the Wild, Chris McCandless keeps a photo album to tell of his own narrative. After learning about piecing together narratives and showing instead of telling, you get your own chance to create and journal your own adventure. Using a camera, take a series of 10-15 pictures with only a phrase or one sentence as a caption. These pictures should serve as a story, however, that is clear to the reader. Have fun with it, and be prepared to share!



-         10-15 photos with short captions

-         Cohesive story (not all over the place; has a point)

-         Must use a binder, photo album, or scrapbook

-         Designed cover that reflects your narrative’s theme

-          Title page

-         One-page, typed, double-spaced reflection on your project. Although you don’t have to answer all of them, consider the following questions:

o       How did you come up with your ideas?

o       What is your story’s strength?

o       What is your weakness? How can you make this part stronger?

o       If you did this project again, what would you do differently?
