The History of Music Told in Seven Rapidly Illustrated Minutes - OPENCULTURE

The History of Music Told in Seven Rapidly Illustrated Minutes - OPENCULTURE | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
Your senses do deceive you, my friends. This is not the latest, greatest video from RSA Animate. No, this video comes to us via Pablo Morales de los Rios, a Spanish artist, who has artistically narrated the history of music — or the Historia de la Música — in a shade less than seven minutes. 6:59, to be precise. You don’t need much Spanish under your belt to realize that the story starts 50,000 years ago, then moves quickly from the Ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians, to the troubadours of the Middle Ages. The video gives disproportionate attention to classical music during the following periods — Renacimiento, Barroco, Classicismo and Romanticismo. But before wrapping up, we tack over to America and witness the birth of jazz and the blues, before heading back across the pond for the Invasión británica. Artistically speaking, it all culminates in a pretty interesting way. But we’ll let you see how things play out.

In addition to this list of distinctive Thanksgiving recipes from each state (I'd love to try so many on this list), the NY Times has also produced this list of the most 'Googled' Thanksgiving recipes in each state.  These are very late additions to my favorite Thanksgiving day resources. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and may yours reflect some some regional distinctiveness and cultural context that you appreciate.

Ten reasons to teach thinking

Ten reasons to teach thinking | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
The teaching of thinking is a critical endeavour for teachers and one that brings enhanced learning opportunities for students. Unfortunately thinking is not something that we naturally do well and as a consequence it is a skill we need to learn. Understanding this is the first step towards establishing a culture of thinking in your classroom

Students have trouble formulating opinions and creating ideas; we must help them generate thoughts and problem solve by sharing frameworks for thinking.

How to update your resume in 30 minutes - and make an impression in no time | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

Let's start with the good news: You just bumped into a well-connected person and impressed the heck out of her. So much so, in fact, that she asked you to follow up with your resume, because she knows someone who's hiring.

You're feeling pretty great. But before you decide which dancing animal GIF accurately sums up your networking victory, you have some work to do. Because, the last time you even thought about your resume was before you got your recent job or started your side gig, and it's seriously out of date.

Visual Literacy - Metalanguage & Learning | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
What it means to be literate today is significantly different to what is
was in the not too distant past. Once, being able to decode text was
sufficient even if barely so. Today literacy involves the ability to make
meaning from a multitude of text types, formats and modalities. The skills
required are more diverse and the opportunities for engagement are much
expanded. This new literacy with its multiple dimensions requires teaching
programmes with a broad depth and appropriate scaffolds
