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.
Generally, I publish a post in this series once a week, but sometimes I post one twice in a week.
Here is Another Special Edition Of “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Debt By Degrees is a short New Yorker column that describes the economic advantages of having a college degree. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Showing Students Why They Should Continue Their Academic Career.
Research Desk: Just How Good Have College Grads Got It? comes from The Washington Post. I’m adding it to the same “academic career” The Best list.
Blood Ties: A Photographer Captures Gang Culture In Her Family is a photo gallery from TIME. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Street Gangs.
Kids Health For Kids has lots of health-related resources that are accessible to English Language Learners. I’m adding it to The Best Health Sites For English Language Learners.
Error Correction Preferences in Written Work of Higher Secondary Students: an Evaluation is a good summary of some ESL/EFL/ELL research. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On ESL/EFL/ELL Error Correction.
Taking great travel pictures is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning Beginning Photography Tips.
Choose Your Own Adventure Videos: Tutorial looks very helpful (thanks to Richard Byrne for the tip). I’m adding it to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.
