“Photos For Class” Is My Favorite Site For Finding Images


I have a huge The Best Online Sources For Images list (and one needing some revising and updating).

And, with all those resources available, Photos For Class has become my “go-to” site for blog and presentation images.

It’s free and, when you download the image (all Creative Commons licensed for public use), proper attribution is shown with it. It can’t get much easier than that….

My Latest NY Times Interactive For ELLs Is On “Reporting the News With Images”


My latest NY Times interactive for English Language Learners is on “Reporting the News With Images.” Students first read a passage about reporting the news online and choose the definitions for several academic vocabulary words. Next, they view a number of interactive news presentations, pick the one they like best, and write about why they like it.

You can see all my past seventy NY Times posts at All My NY Times Posts For English Language Learners – Linked With Descriptions.

New York Public Library Makes 180,000 Images Available In Public Domain


Thanks to Daniel Willingham on Twitter, I learned today that the New York Public Library has made 180,000 “digitized items” available in the public domain.

On top of that, they’ve created a number of cool tools to search the images and for using them (for example, users can create a virtual “trip planner”).

I’m adding this info to The Best Online Sources For Images.
