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:

I think the title of Slate’s slideshow is culturally insensitive, The world’s wackiest modes of public transportation, but the photos themselves are interesting. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.

The longest, tallest and oldest bridges in the world is a slideshow from The Telegraph. I’m adding it to The Best Images Of Spectacular Bridges (& How Students Can Make Their Own).

The World’s 18 Strangest Roadways: Gallery is a slideshow from Popular Mechanics.

L.A.’s shrines to the Virgen de Guadalupe is from the Los Angeles Times. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning & Teaching About The Day Of The Virgin Of Guadalupe.

Canada Day – in pictures is from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Canada.
