We hope you’ll enjoy this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers where we bring together gardeners from the alternate reality game, Evoke with photography students on Youth Voices. Take a look at this recent photo discussion, and join a few Youth Voices students:
- Gamer, photograher, and musician, Jake, from Chris Sloan’s classes at Judge Memorial H.S. in Salt Lake City
- Matt, Brianna, and Annie, from Susan Ettenheim’s digital photography class at Eleanor Roosevelt High School, NYC
- We are also joined by Evoke gardener, Michele Barron.
