the book

photos, Janice Levy



a picture is worth... combines the skills of literacy, critical thinking, communication, photography, technology and essay writing with crucial values of integrity, self-awareness, empathy and leadership to provide a standards-based high school curriculum. 


a picture is worth... was born from a need to address Reading’s “unwelcome distinction” in 2011 from The New York Times as America’s city with the highest poverty rate, extraordinarily low college-degree attainments and elevated high school dropout numbers.


This creative and dynamic program—a collaboration between Threshold Collaborative, photographer Janice Levy and I-LEAD Charter School in Reading, PA—provides youth with the opportunity to find their voice by crafting indelible stories about their lives and sharing them through audio, photographs and written essays.
