Online Encyclopedia, Your Way
The latest version of Scholastic’s Grolier Online encyclopedia is not only up to date but lets you customize its content to the reading level, needs and abilities of elementary (grades 3 and up), middle or high-school kids as well as for adult library users, librarians and educators. It has the same detailed material but the interface, articles, maps and videos have been tailored for each audience. There’s also a great dashboard for teachers to get lesson plans and access to the encyclopedia’s 120,000 articles, 340,000 Web links, articles from more than 1,100 international newspapers and an excellent series of debate questions to get a class discussion going. There’s a free trial to see if it fits into your way of teaching.
