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. 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”:
Syria in the Spotlight is an interactive from The Wall Street Journal. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About What’s Happening In Syria.
Biggest Threats To Our Ocean’s Wildlife is a useful infographic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Oceans.
Immigration Stories of Yesterday and Today is an interactive timeline from Scholastic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Immigration In The United States.
Bethlehem nuns in West Bank barrier battle is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Walls That Separate Us.
New record for world’s fastest toilet on wheels is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About “Cool” Cars (& Designing Your Own!).
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
“The Best…” series (which now number over 900)
The most popular posts on this blog each month
My monthly choices for the best posts on this blog each month
