As I was pursuing the App store, I found a great new app from Getty Images. If you don't know Getty Images, they are the people behind some of the best photos taken in history. As I teach social studies, I am always on the look out for great images to spark inquiry and conversation in my classroom. By starting with an image like this one, you can have your students engage in conversations about what is going on in this photo. What might they be talking about? So many questions that you and your students could come up with to start your discussion. I suggest you look through their online bank.
