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”:
International Women’s Day: political rights around the world mapped is a good interactive from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Women’s History.
Elena Aguilar has created a useful website for instructional coaches. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On “Instructional Coaching.”
Life and death on the world’s most dangerous roads – interactive is from The Guardian.
Front Page News Photos Stimulate Lively Debates in Adult ELL Classes is a useful article from TESOL. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons.
Here are two important commentaries on U.S. Senator Rob Portman’s recent changing of his position on gay marriage — one is very serious, and the other makes a serious point very humorously. I’m adding both to The Best Sites For Walking In Someone Else’s Shoes.
Humans Fight Over Robo-Readers is from Inside Higher Ed. I’m adding it to The Best Posts On Computer-Graded Essays.
Duolingo looks like it’s a pretty decent language-learning site. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning Spanish Online and to The Best Multilingual & Bilingual Sites For Learning English.
Everything you need to know about ebook distribution is from Vook. I’m adding it to So, You Want To Write A Book? Here’s The Best Advice…
Wealth Inequality is from The Economist. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality.
