(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”:
How Americans spend money, compared with other countries is a chart from The Washington Post. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.
Cartoon: PowerPoint Fever is from The New Yorker via This Week in Education. I’m adding it to The Best Sources Of Advice For Making Good Presentations.
The Gated Community Mentality is from The New York Times. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Walls That Separate Us.
The Rich Get Even Richer is from The New York Times. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality.
What Makes an Answer a Great Answer? is a pretty interesting post from the Atlantic.
Who Shouldn’t Go to College? is from The New York Times. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Showing Students Why They Should Continue Their Academic Career.
