NY Times Publishes Presidential Debate Word Cloud That’s Perfect For ELLs & Others

wordcloud

The New York Times has just published a great word cloud-like visual highlighting the words most used in the Democratic and Republican presidential debates – so far.

It’s perfect to use with English Language Learners – and other students – to initiate a discussion of the election and to also teach new vocabulary.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About The 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.

Infographic: “U.S. Health Care vs. The World [2016]”

A few years ago I published the 2013 version of this infographic at The Best Online Resources For Learning About Health Care Reform.

Here’s the 2016 version. It might be a useful learning activity to compare the two…

Three New Visualizations Showing How Americans Spend Their Time

dayday

I regularly collect visualizations of data showing how Americans spend their time. You can see them all at The Best Visualizations Of How People Spend Their Days (which also includes some describing how we spend our money, too).

Students find them interesting, and they create great opportunities for compare/contrast analysis, especially when the visualizations differentiate between gender, age, ethnicity, etc.

Flowing Data has just developed three new visualizations of the most recent data, all of which are pretty neat.

Instead of describing the details of how they’re different, I’ll just list their titles with live links. They’re all worth a visit:

Most Common Use of Time, By Age and Sex

The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2015

The-Best-Collections-Of

I still have to post my choices for The Best Infographics of 2015 but, in the meantime, lots of other people are publishing their own choices. So I thought I’d create a separate annual “Best” list of those collections (they also include some that try to explain the year in charts and infographics).

In addition to exploring these lists from others, you can check out all my lists at A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Infographics, including The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2014.

Look for my choices sometime next week.

I’ll add this post to All My 2015 “Best” Lists In One Place.

And I’ll continue to add to this list and new collections are published elsewhere – there are a lot more to come (check out last year’s list to get an idea)

Here are The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2015:

The 100 Best Maps of the Year is from Google Maps Mania.

The Year in Interactive Graphics is from The Wall Street Journal.
