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”:
#GeniusHour Blog Post Index is by Denise Krebs. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Applying “Fed Ex Days” To Schools.
Kids Speak Out on Student Engagement is by Heather Wolpert-Gawron. It’s not an exact fit, but I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Students Evaluating Classes (And Teachers).
The Copyright Genie is pretty cool. I’m adding it to The Best Resources To Learn About Copyright Issues.
6 Rules for a Great Story from Barnaby Conrad and Snoopy is from Brain Pickings. I’m adding it to The Best Writing Advice From Famous Authors.
Starting the Conversation on Rethinking Awards Ceremonies is by Chris Wejr. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On “Motivating” Students.
Pixar story rules (one version) comes from The Pixar Touch. I’m adding it to The Best Digital (& Non-Digital) Storytelling Resources.
Forget Edison: This is How History’s Greatest Inventions Really Happened is from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Learn About Inventions.
