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”:
Reframing The Rubric is a very thoughtful article worth reading. I’m adding it to The Best Rubric Sites (And A Beginning Discussion About Their Use).
The Best Value in Formative Assessment is from ASCD’s Educational Leadership. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Formative Assessment.
How to Refine Driving Questions for Effective Project-Based Learning comes from Edutopia. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Cooperative Learning Ideas. I’m also adding another post titled How To Write Driving Questions to the same “The Best…” list.
Let’s Take a Look at How Fat the World Has Become is a chart from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Nutrition & Food Safety. I’m also adding a slideshow on America’s Wacky Fair Foods. It could be a fun example to show students about what not to eat.
The U.S. Department of Education recently revamped its data website. You can read about it at this Ed Week article, and you can visit the site here. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Get Reliable, Valid, Accessible & Useful Education Data.
Cite This For Me is a new web app that helps you create reference citations in the “Harvard Referencing Style.” I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning Research & Citation Skills.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
“The Best…” series (which now number 691)
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
