Really Interesting Interviews With Benjamin Bloom

The ASCD In Service blog has republished two twenty-five year old interviews with Benjamin Bloom, creator of Bloom’s Taxonomy.

They’re not specifically related to the Taxonomy, but they focus on two other very interesting topics — automaticity and talent development.

Even thought they’re aren’t on the Taxonomy, I’m still adding the link to The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom.


Snag Learning For Online Documentaries

Snag Learning has many high-quality online documentaries.

You can read more about it at Richard Byrne’s blog.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For News & History Videos That Won’t Get Blocked By Content Filters (At Least, Not By Ours!).



More On Hurricane Katrina

Here are the newest additions to The Best Websites For Teaching & Learning About New Orleans (by the way, with all these five-year anniversary of Katrina resources, I’m adding that list to A Compilation Of “The Best…” Lists About Natural Disasters:

Remembering Katrina, Five Years Ago is a series of photos from The Big Picture.

Destroy This Memory is a slideshow from TIME Magazine.

A Katrina Photographer Returns to New Orleans is another TIME slideshow.

A sobering look back five years after Hurricane Katrina comes from the LA Times.

Katrina: Five Years Later is a Wall St. Journal interactive.

Storm Damage: Katrina’ Wake is a Wall St. Journal slideshow.

Then and Now: Five Years After Katrina is another slideshow from the Wall St. Journal.


Favorious Lets You Find People’s Favorite Tweets

Favorious ranks Twitter’s most popular tweets based on how many times they have been “favorited.”

I think it’s fairly useful.

I’m adding it to The Best Third-Party Twitter Apps That Don’t Require Your Password.


Brikut Is An Interesting New Site

The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience” list is filled with links to sites where students can write on the web and others can read their creations. Some of these links include news sites or others where they can leave comments on news content. Brikut is somewhat similar — users can leave comments on news stories from around the web. It differs, though, in one key way that makes it potentially especially engaging to students — users can add a link to the site to any other article about a topic that they are interested in. Then, they can leave a comment about that news item. Or, a teacher can choose a particular article that he/she wants students to comment on and, in addition to students comments, they can check to see what other people have said, too.

It’s similar to another site called Spotery.

Both are now on the previously mentioned “authentic audience” “The Best…” list.


A Collection Of The Best Sites For Learning About The Seasons

I’ve posted “The Best…” lists about all the four seasons, and thought it might be useful to list them all in one place.

Here they are:

The Best Sites For Learning About The Summer

The Best Sites For Images Of Fall Foliage (& For Teaching About The Season)

The Best Sites For Learning About The Winter Season

The Best Sites For Learning About The Spring Season

The Best Resources For Learning About Women’s Suffrage

Ninety years ago today, suffragists won the right for women to vote in the United States.

This is going to be a very short “The Best…” list because I’ve already collected many related resources for a lesson on my United States History class blog. Since it’s late, and I’m tired, I will pointing people to that link instead of redoing it all here. But I’ll also include a couple of new resources.

Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Learning About Women’s Suffrage:

The Associated Press has a good interactive. Click on “milestones.”

Brittanica has an interactive map tracing the history of women’s suffrage.

How Stuff Works has several short videos on the women’s suffrage movement.

Women Work For A Better America is my lesson that’s filled with resources at our class blog.

Additional suggestions are welcome.

An Uneasy Peace In Iraq is another Wall St. Journal slideshow.
