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:

“War/Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath” is an impressive slideshow from The Wall Street Journal.

Refugee Hotel: Strangers in a Strange Land is a photo gallery from TIME. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Immigration In The United States.

The Best Nature Pictures Of 2012 are from The Boston Globe. I’m adding it to The Best Nature Photographs Of The Year.

Photos of the World’s Oldest Living Things comes from The Smithsonian.
