When I teach history to high school or college age students, I maximize the efficient use of visuals. We are all visual learners, no matter what your textual reading level. So, why not engage everyone in your classroom with visuals? First, I teach students how to perform a discovery based learning method -- VTS -- and then I have them use ThingLink to share their findings about the image with the class. Take a peek at this one. Drag your cursor over the "tags" on the image to see what I am talking about.
