The Teacher's Guide to the Library of Congress - Best Colleges Online | Teacher & Librarian Toolbox | Scoop.it

The Library of Congress is an amazing resource. It is the largest library in the world and has put much of their collection online.

What is available?  "Spoken history, photographs, and iconic cultural resources are available as teaching resources, and many of them are neatly organized into lesson plans, collections, and themes, perfect for bringing them into the classroom."

Since searching for the resources may be "overwhelming" this post provides "a short guide to making the most of the Library of Congress, with tips and ideas for activities, plus links to guides, resources, and tools that you can put to work in your classroom."

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers

Topics: education, google, guest, How To, search, students, technology

inShare122  

I recently came across an article in Wired Magazine called “Why Kids Can’t Search“.  I’m always interested in this particular topic, because it’s something I struggle with in my middle and high school classes constantly, and I know I’m not alone in my frustrations.

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again.
