(Usually, I just post a weekly version of this regular feature. However, sometimes I post an extra “Special Edition” when I have more good links than usual)
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 is a Special Edition of “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Be Better at Twitter: The Definitive, Data-Driven Guide is from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning To Learn What Twitter Is All About.
Writing Rules by Henry Miller, Elmore Leonard, Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman & George Orwell is from Open Culture.
To My Old Master is an amazing letter written by a former slave to his “owner.” I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The American Civil War.
Foldables and Notebookables is from “TeachFine.” I’m adding it to The Best Teacher Resources For “Foldables.”
The Wall Street Journal has a pretty intriguing interactive examining the phrases President Obama has used in his three State of the Union speeches. I’m adding it to The Best (& Most Intriguing) Resources For Learning About The State Of The Union Message.
