Visualizing Social Justice: Using Controversial Images in Social Studies Classrooms
Hawley, Todd S.; Crowe, Alicia R.; Mooney, Evan
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v89 n3 p85-90 2016
In this article, we promote the use of controversial images to enhance the discussion of social justice issues in schools. Controversial images provide rich opportunities for students to question what is occurring currently in society as well as what has occurred in the past. We provide an example set of activities to be used in teacher education that can help future teachers explore engaging methods for teaching with controversial images, discuss tensions involved with the use of controversial images, and to develop connections between using controversial images and teaching for social justice.
