2016 Photos of The Year
Each year, as the year nears an end, news organizations and others, post their selections for “photos of the year” from the year about to end.

Educators could engage students by having them select one (or more) of the  images and conduct research into the background of the image.

Questions to consider:
What makes a particular image “the best”?
Why did this organization choose this image?
What criteria did they use to determine “the best”?
Are there other images, from the year that’s just ended, that did not make the cut, and why?

Students could compare-and-contrast selections from US-based companies versus those groups that are not US-based.

Educators can use these images to teach both “visual literacy” as well as “how to close read an image.”  Consider using either this Photo Analysis Worksheet or the Explain The Image handout (page 8 in this pdf) with your students.
