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:

Iconic photos tucked away in mountain mine is a fascinating slideshow from CBS News.

Travel Photographer of the Year 2011 competition: winners’ gallery is from The Telegraph. I’m adding it to The Best Travel Photographs Of The Year.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2011 comes from The News Of Australia.

Amazing images that show America’s steely resolve in bitter aftermath of Pearl Harbor is from The Mail Online. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Pearl Harbor.

Pictured: A World at 7 Billion is an amazing New York Times project. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Our World’s Population Of 7 Billion.
