Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through (and learned from) Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog. Now and then, in order to make it a bit easier for me, I may try to break it up into mid-month and end-of-month lists.
I’ve already shared in earlier posts 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 August’s Best Tweets — Part One (not listed in any order):
Michelle Rhee from Washington, D.C. (and our mayor’s future wife) declares that schools need “radical change” in….Sacramento. Uh oh…
Speaking of Rhee, she confesses to taping her students’ mouths shut during her first year of school. (Thanks to Alice Mercer for the tip).
