  • Begins Resources for Student’s Needs
  • Educators will most likely find several key References in an area of interest and then get comfortable with what is available. The vastness of the Internet guarantees exhaustion if you think you've got to find every last piece of information on a topic. Instead, by finding References appropriate to interests, degree of expertise, and grade level, educators can tap into support material that could not be obtained this easily anywhere else.
  • Search Terms: Science: Biomes, DNA, replicators. Math: Factoring, Polynomials, Percent. Electives: “Food Pyramid,” “Vincent Van Gogh” Language Arts: “Lord of the Flies,” “A Tale of Two Cities,” Social Studies: Oilfields, “Women’s Suffrage,” Uxmal
