Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog.
I’ve already shared in earlier posts this month several new resources I found on Twitter — and where I gave credit to those from whom I learned about them. Those are not included again in this post.
Here are my picks for June’s Best Tweets (not listed in any order):

Visualizing Cultures: Image Driven Scholarship a pretty neat curriculum developed at MIT, and can be adapted for ELL’s. Thanks again to Russel Tarr.
