How to Navigate an "Upside-Down" World: Using Images in the History Classroom
Volk, Steven S.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n141 p53-65 Spr 2015
This chapter describes the challenges and benefits of working with images in a history classroom. The first part indicates the complexity of helping students use images as historical evidence; the second argues that close readings of images can help students develop their deep attention skills as they question the evidence they see; and the final discusses how work with images can be done in a way that accommodates all students, including those with limited or no sight.
