"Web search can be a remarkable tool for students, and a bit of instruction in how to search for academic sources will help your students become critical thinkers and independent learners."

"Google Research Tool.

In a nutshell, it is a nifty little search bar that appears along the right-hand side of your document. You can start a search by typing into the search bar, and narrow your search to specific types of results (such as images or pdfs) with the drop-down menu. The research tool is also smart: when you first open it, it offers suggestions for things you might find useful based on what you are writing about."

George Mason University's History News Network (HNN) features articles and excerpts by historians from both the left and the right. Some weeks we may appear to tilt one way or the other simply because of serendipity. But our aim is to present a wide mix of views.

"As the search engine that’s become its own verb, Google’s success is difficult to frame.

One of the most telling examples of their gravity in search is how few legitimate competitors they have. (Some would say they have none.)"

Back in 2010, we shared with you 100 awesome search engines and research resources in our post: 100 Time-Saving Search Engines for Serious Scholars. It’s been an incredible resource, but now, it’s time for an update. Some services have moved on, others have been created, and we’ve found some new discoveries, too. Many of our original 100 are still going strong, but we’ve updated where necessary and added some of our new favorites, too. Check out our new, up-to-date collection to discover the very best search engine for finding the academic results you’re looking for.

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow"

THERE are images of a pregnant man, a Victorian-era robot used to solve disputes and websites denying the achievements of US civil rights campaigner Martin Luther King.

An increasing number of rogue sites with political or racist agendas has prompted a warning to schoolchildren against becoming the cut-and-paste generation.

We put them all here so you don’t have to search for them."

"As adolescents begin their journey along the road to individualization, peer group influence plays an important developmental role in the psychosocial process of separation from parents. Teachers can take advantage of this natural cycle in human development if we understand what’s going on and adjust our pedagogy accordingly. We can help our middle grades students build happy, learning brains through interactive, interdependent group work."
