“Bloom’s Taxonomy According to Pirates of the Caribbean”

Bloom’s Taxonomy According to Pirates of the Caribbean is the title of a short, fun YouTube video.

It’s a neat idea. In fact, for some classes it might be a good assignment — look at a movie or a book and find how characters are using the different levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy. In fact, I might try to incorporate this as a project for the book discussion groups that I organize in my classes.

I’m adding the link to The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom.

And because I think it’s a neat idea to apply to reading, I’m also going to add this post to My Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them and put it under the “Reading, Writing & Talking About Books” section there. Students could view this video as a model.

Thanks to Ashley Allain on Twitter for the tip.

The Best Sites For Learning About The Flooding In Pakistan

Pakistan is being hit by terrible flooding, and I thought readers might find it useful to see this short compilation of related resources.

I’m also adding this list to A Compilation Of “The Best…” Lists About Natural Disasters.

Here, so far, are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About The Flooding In Pakistan:

Flooding devastates Pakistan’s northwestern region is the headline for a series of photos in the Sacramento Bee.

Pakistan floods – worst hit areas is an interactive from The Guardian.

Floods Ravage Pakistan is a MSNBC slideshow.

Pakistan and Afghanistan grapple with massive floods is a BBC slideshow.

“Tours From Above”

Tours From Above is a new site hosting spectacular aerial panoramic images from around the world.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Panoramas.

Thanks to Google Maps Mania for the tip. is a very simple application that lets you make online video or just a audio messages that you can send online. No registration is required. The only negative is that you can see the most recent messages other people sent, which can be problematic for classroom use.

I’m adding it to The Best Applications For Sending Online Video Messages.

PostRank’s Top Posts For July From This Blog

I regularly share my picks for the most useful posts of each month. I also publish a list of the month’s most popular posts, based on the number of times they are “clicked-on.”

I also share a list of Post Rank’s analysis of each month’s top posts. Post Rank uses a variety of ways to measure level of “engagement” that readers have with specific blog posts. I have a constantly updated “widget” on my blog’s sidebar that lists these posts, but I thought a monthly post would be helpful/interesting to subscribers who don’t regularly visit the blog itself.

Here are their rankings for the month of July:
