The Extemp Files were just updated, through Thursday’s articles.
Added for this update (in part for my NXer) is an Elections folder. While I usually find such things to be too transient, this election cycle has had an entertainment element I haven’t seen before that makes it worth following.
PF: For the Education topic (December ’15), check the Education folder. This last update adds several more articles about testing. Articles addressing Common Core or the NCLB rewrite may also discuss testing.
Extemp Files instructions repost: The link takes you to a Dropbox folder; if a pop-over window saying something about setting up an account or logging in comes up, just close it.
The files are serious overkill – over 12,000 articles since July. There should be a way to copy or download individual articles when you find the ones you want in your files – try right-clicking the specific PDF file/article and selecting the ‘save link as’ option. While this blog has some of the best articles posted, there may be others that you feel are worth having.
The four-digit numbers at the beginning of most of the file names (and the names of the sub-folders) are simply mm/yy codes so that you can tell how recent the article is at a glance.
Please don’t download the whole thing; it trips up my Dropbox limits and bad things happen that shut down access for others. If you need a full copy, let me know (see the About link for an email address) and I’ll make arrangements to get you a copy.
