I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing so. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.
Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Pic Juice is yet another online editor for photos I’m adding to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects.
Six Reasons Students Get Summer Off (And The Agrarian Calendar Isn’t One of Them) is an interesting article I’m adding to The Best Resources On The “Summer Slide.”
The importance of active listening and how to do this in an EFL classroom is a useful #ELT Chat summary from Twitter. I’m adding it to The Best Listening Sites For English Language Learners.
Saudi Arabia Begins Construction of World’s Tallest Building – The Kingdom Tower is an article, with photos, I’m adding to The Best Sites To Learn About The World’s Tallest Buildings.
Here are links to Amazing Panoramic Photos Of Hiroshima After The Atomic Bomb Blast. And here’s a Telegraph slideshow titled Japan marks the 66th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. I’m adding both to The Best Resources For Learning About The Atomic Bombings Of Japan.
Here are two articles I’m adding to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality. They both are definitely not accessible to ELL’s, but they have great information that could be used by a teacher:
Isolated, Vulnerable And Broke is a column from The New York Times.
Can the Middle Class Be Saved? is from The Atlantic.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
