Use photographs across all disciplines

noun_Camera_2053929_000000

The New York Times just published their Year in Pictures feature, which can be a great tool to aid discussion in almost any discipline. People are visual – their eyes naturally land on photos over text when presented with a website (or a magazine page) that contains both. Showing these powerful images in class, and tying them content you are teaching, could be a memorable lesson. How are shadows created? Where do we see real-life axis points? How do different cultures engage in protest? The possibilities are endless!
