The photos are printed on glossy, heavy-duty stock ready to be easily displayed in classrooms, libraries, hallways and offices. Each photograph in a collection is truly thought-provoking and directly involves the viewer. A detailed caption fully describes each photo and its source. Each Photo Collection includes an easy-to-use, open-ended, photo-analysis worksheet that may be reproduced for every student.
