Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA)

Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA) | ESL Writing Resources | Scoop.it
450 million word corpus of American English, 1990-2012. Compare to the BNC and ANC. Large, balanced, up-to-date, and freely-available online.
Rebecca Soble's insight:

A useful tool to see how phrases are actually used in native written english.  For example, search for the phrases "contributes to",  "brings about", or "gives rise to" to see how these cause phrases are commonly used.

bubbl.us | brainstorm and mind map online | ESL Writing Resources | Scoop.it
Brainstorm online with bubbl.us. Easily create colorful mindmaps to print or share with others. Almost no learning curve.
Rebecca Soble's insight:

Nice, easy-to-use flash site for creating mind maps...  You can create and export a mind map (to JPG) without even registering.  Free registration lets you save 3 mind maps on the site.  Students can use to organize their ideas, teachers can ask their students to do a mind map for homework, or with internet access in the classroom they can do one together and everyone can get the JPG easily.
