Special Edition Of “Photo Galleries Of The Week”

I usually just publish posts in this series once each week, but some timely good ones just appeared today…

Obviously, photos can be great educational tools with English Language Learners and with any students (see The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons). I post about many photo galleries, also called slideshows. To do it in a little more organized way, though, I recently began this weekly feature called “Photo Galleries Of The Week.” This post is a “round-up” of online slideshows I’m adding to various “The Best…” lists:

Faces of Protest for Trayvon Martin is a photo gallery from TIME. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Lessons On Trayvon Martin.
