From NewseumED

“This case study explores a photojournalist’s ethical duty to be fair, accurate and clear, specifically in regard to manipulating photographs.”

  1. Divide students into small groups.
  2. Have students read the scenario and discuss the options.
  3. Encourage them to come up with a consensus on the action they’d take.
  4. Have each group share their decision and explain their reasoning. Did they find other groups’ arguments compelling? Why or why not?
