(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”:

What Is Critical Thinking? is from Farnam Street. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Teaching & Learning Critical Thinking In The Classroom.

The Simple Things I Do To Promote Brain-Based Learning In My Classroom is by Judy Willis. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On “Brain-Based Learning” — Help Me Find More.

Black History Is American History is a cool interactive site. I’m adding it to The Best Websites To Teach & Learn About African-American History.

World’s most extraordinary species mapped for the first time – interactive is from The Guardian. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For World Biodiversity Day (& Endangered Species Day).

Spy Games is a Wall Street Journal interactive. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Spies.

“Writing with Purpose: Personal Narratives by Teenagers” is from What Kids Can Do. It offers some good writing models. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For K-12 Writing Instruction/Reinforcement.
