Since I posted The Best Sites To Learn About The Recession yesterday, I’ve learned about several new good resources and am adding them to the list.
The new sites include:
The American Economy: Down and Out is a slideshow from TIME Magazine.
Tough Times In Cleveland is another TIME slideshow.
Stimulus Watch is a site that doesn’t really fit into any of the categories on that list, but it’s intriguing. It supposedly lists all the projects different governmental projects have proposed to do with stimulus money, and then people can vote which ones they think are best. They’re categorized by community, so they’re very accessible. The only drawback to it is since it’s a wiki, even though all the projects are listed, many don’t have detailed information yet on what the project entails. Nevertheless, its interactivity could offer some good possibilities for student engagement.
