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:
Computers – Queen’s Diamond Jubilee: Technology then and now – 60 years in pictures is a slideshow from The Telegraph. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The History Of Technology.
Lost in translation: The hilarious foreign signs that don’t get their English quite right is from The Mail Online. I’m adding it to The Best Collections Of Funny Signs (For Use In English Classes).
Fifty Stunning Olympic Moments is a series of photo galleries from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The London 2012 Olympics.
A Day in the World: Snapshots of Today, for Tomorrow is a slideshow from TIME. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.
The American West, 150 Years Ago is a series of photos from The Atlantic.
Marches and commemorations in Southland mark Armenian genocide is a photo gallery from The L.A. Times. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Genocide.
