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”:
Color My Ride is an interesting infographic from the Wall Street Journal examining the color of people’s cars in different countries (yes, you read that right). I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.
Cigarette labels: U.S. smokers to see new warnings is an interactive from the Associated Press. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For ELL’s To Learn About The Dangers Of Smoking.
What is First Aid? has a series of closed-captioned videos on the basics of first aid. I’m adding it to The Best Health Sites For English Language Learners.
People Movin is a fascinating interactive infographic on world migration trends. Even though it’s not exclusively about the United States, I’m still adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Immigration In The United States.
A timeline of women’s right to vote – interactive comes from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Women’s Suffrage.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
