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”:
Not So Hot for Teacher is a very interesting New York Times article about the portrayal of teachers in movies and in TV. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Learn About (And View Video Clips Of) Teachers In The Movies.
Practical PBL: Design an Instructional Unit in Seven Phases is from Edutopia. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Cooperative Learning Ideas.
CCSS: Take a Deep Breath is from MiddleWeb. I’m adding it to The Most Useful Resources For Implementing Common Core.
Dan Meyer On Personalization is by…Dan Meyer. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On “Race To The Top” (& On “Personalized Learning”).
Google autocomplete: The internet where you are is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.
The world’s extinct and endangered species – interactive map is from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For World Biodiversity Day (& Endangered Species Day).
The Golden Gate Bridge: Who destroyed it best? is from io9. I’m adding it to The Best Movie Scenes To Use For English-Language Development.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
“The Best…” series (which now number 950)
The most popular posts on this blog each month
My monthly choices for the best posts on this blog each month
