Using Photographs to Teach Social Justice is an excellent twelve lesson resource from Teaching Tolerance. Thanks to Judie Haynes for sharing it on Twitter (by the way, look for an excerpt from her new book that will appear here in a few days).

The series is particularly suited to United States History classes, and would be accessible to mainstream and English Language Learners. I would have definitely used them last year when I was teaching United States History to ELL’s, and will adapt a couple this year for my ELL Geography class.

Though I am completely supportive of the intent and message of the lessons, I’ll probably be making some minor adjustments to them to make some of the questions a bit more subtle.

It’s a definite addition to The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons.
