With the end of the year rapidly approaching, many educators and organizations are putting together various “most popular” lists.
I thought I’d bring together the best of them in one place, and will be continuing to add to this post over the next couple of weeks. Feel free to let me know which ones I’m missing:
I’ll start with my own: My Most Popular Posts In 2014.
10 Most Popular Teaching Tools Used This Year is from Edudemic.
The 5 Most Popular Educational Apps of 2014 is from Common Sense Media.
The 5 most viewed posts on Edublogs in 2014 (nice to see that one of my posts is on the list )
Again, please let me know what I’m missing!
I’m adding this post to All My 2014 “Best” Lists — So Far — In One Place.
Similar to my periodic Quote of The Day, I’m starting a new feature called “Statistic Of The Day.”
This first one is from The Harvard Graduate School Of Education article, The Education of Immigrant Children:
Each week, I publish a post containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.
Here are this week’s picks:
Maurice J. Elias has written a very useful article titled Social-emotional skills can boost Common Core implementation for Phi Delta Kappan. Unfortunately, if you’re not a subscriber, it costs $5, which I thought was worth paying. I’m adding it to The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources.
Here’s some good teaching advice:

There’s a great CBS News video of college football star Malcolm Mitchell’s love reading on The Best Videos For Educators In 2014 – Part Two list (you can also find it at The Best Videos & Articles Where Athletes Explain How Reading & Writing Well Has Helped Their Career).
Then I found a second video sharing his story at Jackie Gerstein’s “Best” list of videos.
