This chapter describes the challenges and benefits of working with images in a history classroom. The first part indicates the complexity of helping students use images as historical evidence; the second argues that close readings of images can help students develop their deep attention skills as they question the evidence they see; and the final discusses how work with images can be done in a way that accommodates all students, including those with limited or no sight.
