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”:
What Makes A Great Curator Great? How To Distinguish High-Value Curation From Generic Republishing is from Robin Good. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles About Curation.
Considering the Future of Reading: Lessons, Links and Thought Experiments is from The New York Times Learning Network, as is Beyond the Book Report: Ways to Respond to Literature Using New York Times Models. They are obviously not my posts, but I think the best place to “curate” them is at My Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them.
Saviors and Burnouts: Rethinking Teachers in Popular Culture is from Rethinking Schools. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Learn About (And View Video Clips Of) Teachers In The Movies.
The Bonus Army: How A Protest Led To The GI Bill is from NPR. I’m adding it to The Best Websites To Learn About Veterans Day.
The Skyline of 2016 [Interactive] is from Scientific American. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About The World’s Tallest Buildings.
Statue of Liberty: Lady Liberty turns 125 is an interactive from The Associated Press. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The Statue Of Liberty.
Quote Investigator is a blog that…investigates if well-known quotations are accurately sourced. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Find Quotations On The Web.
Copyright Free and Public Domain Media Sources provides a nice collection of image resources. I’m adding it to The Best Online Sources For Images.
Migrations Map shows world migration patterns. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Immigration In The United States.
This Week In History is a weekly feature from The English Club. I’m adding it to The Best “Today In History” Sites.
The Morningside Center has a number of lessons related to Occupy Wall Street. I’m adding them to The Best Resources To Help Students Learn About Occupy Wall Street.
