I'm looking for a resource that merges Emotional Intelligence with Bloom's Taxonomy. Does anyone know if this exists? I thought I'd seen it. We are trying to show our students examples of really worthwhile responses to their Literature Circles roles. Otherwise they don't really know what's possible and don't come up with their best contributions.

I'm not a fan of Bloom but this sounds intriguing! Commenting here so that I will see if someone does find it. I'm curious!

I love the side by side comparison of constitutions. Dates are informative and sometimes surprising.
 
I came across this while helping a colleague develop a "Constitution" project. It is a fully searchable repository of all the constitutions in the world. Among other things, it allows you to compare them by topic or phrase, and even export excerpts to GaFE to help you draft your own constitution.

As if - poem inspired by +Michelle Pacansky-Brock  #digiwrimo  
Thank you for your beautifully worded post, Michelle Pacansky-Brock. I first shared these images in a blog post back in 2009. They are part of a historical narrative contained within an autograph book which belonged to my maternal grandmother. (I attempt to write down the story) ...

Can anyone help me find (free, online) short story collections, preferably contemporary, and suitable for 15-16 year olds. Mixed gender, mixed cultures would be nice. Some Australian would also be nice.

I guess there's a lot of leadership from the margins.

Celebrate visual literacies on TTT http://edtechtalk.com/ttt on Wed Nov 11 at 9PM ET / 6PM PT / http://www.timetemperature.com/time-tools-advanced/utc-2015111109pm-us-new+york-12.html

As Digital Writing Month http://www.digitalwritingmonth.com/ shifts into its second week, the theme of exploration is centered around visual literacies.

Guest writers at #DigiWriMo are exploring the intersections of words and images, and stories, in a variety of ways, asking participants to play around with the notions of the visual medium.

Topics, and daily inspirational activities, include how images spark writing (and vice versa); the ways in which family photos can connect us to family history; the emergence of infographics as way to shape data; and the telling of stories through the uses of graphic novel and comics.

We're doing inquiry around how we "see" the world, and how what we see connects with how we "write" the world.

Join the conversation at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt on Wednesday, November 11th at 9PM ET/6PM PT/http://www.timetemperature.com/time-tools-advanced/utc-2015111109pm-us-new+york-12.html
