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”:
Killer Waves: How Tsunamis Changed History is an article from Live Science that could be very useful in my “What If?” history projects. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teaching “What If?” History Lessons.
14 Brilliant Bloom’s Taxonomy Posters For Teachers is from Teach Thought. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom.
Dying languages: scientists fret as one disappears every 14 days is from The Star. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For International Mother Language Day.
Brazilian Police Evict Indigenous Squatters from 2014 Stadium Site is a photo gallery from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For International Day Of The World’s Indigenous People.
Flood Tools shows you, historically, how likely a particular address is to be flooded. Because Sacramento is now the most likely U.S. city to be hit by a catastrophic flood, and we teach about it in class, I’m adding it to
The Best Sites For Showing Sacramento Destroyed By Floods.
The 1040 Form Turns 100: Resources To Explain Income Taxes is from The ASIDE blog. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Taxes.
