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”:
More Than Just Bill Nye… Using Video in the Classroom is a post from Mss L’s Whole Brain Teaching blog. She shares some good ideas and excellent resources. I’m adding it to A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites.

I’ve previously posted about the Go Social Studies Go website. I’m adding their Geography page to The Best Geography Sites For Beginning & Intermediate English Language Learners.
