Five lessons, each is differentiated as Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced. Mapped to three sets of national standards. Excellent way to get started teaching search skills. (I know there's no room in your curriculum to do this. Perhaps that's what's wrong with your curriculum?)Seize the opportunity to help your students develop real 21st Century Skills.  

Stephanie Sapp's curator insight, April 27, 2014 8:14 AM

I like that it includes AASL Standards.  We must start teaching technology standards in every class.
