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”:
A Brief History of Time Zones is a BBC interactive
Audio slideshow: Mapping Africa is also from the BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Historic Maps.
Urban Jungle on the Reservation is a slideshow from TIME Magazine. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Street Gangs.
Study: Torture often produces false information, more intense post-traumatic stress disorders is a report I’m adding to The Best Sites For Discussing The Morality Of Torture.
Nyiragongo Crater: Journey to the Center of the World is a series of photos from The Boston Globe’s Big Picture. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Volcanoes.
Independence Day: Developing Self-Directed Learning Projects is from The New York Times Learning Project.
Unions, Wages and the ‘Moral Economy’ is from Miller-McCune.
Aspen Institute Documents Flaws of Teacher Evaluation System
Ken Thomas has lots of nature photos in the public domain. I’m adding the link to The Best Online Sources For Images. Thanks to Richard Byrne for the tip.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
“The Best…” series (which are now 650 in number)
The most popular posts on this blog each month
My monthly choices for the best posts on this blog each month
Each month I do an “Interview Of The Month” with a leader in education
Periodically, I post “A Look Back” highlighting older posts that I think are particularly useful
Resources that share various “most popular” lists useful to teachers
Interviews with ESL/EFL teachers in “hot spots” around the world.
