I’ve usually done two different types of “year in review” annual posts — one focusing on photo collections and the other on non-photo galleries.
Last year, though, I decided to just do one list combining both.
Usually, these “year-in-review” features are published online after schools have begun their winter breaks. I’m publishing this year’s list a little early with the few that are available so that teachers can use them, and will add new ones as they become available.
