A Brief History of Photo Fakery is a very cool slideshow from the New York Times. It shows clearly how photos have been faked throughout history.

I’ll definitely be using it in my International Baccalaureate “Theory of Knowledge” class to demonstrate how seeing is not always believing.   I’ve also been pleasantly surprised to see that there are many lessons, including the one in which I’d use this slideshow, that can easily be modified for English Language Learners and maintain the key higher-order thinking skills and strategies that I’ll be using in the IB class.

It’ll be an interesting year as I try to integrate my IB lessons into my Intermediate English class.
