At the start of every school year I like to review search strategies with students. If you like to do the same and want some new ideas to try this fall, take a look at my eBook Teaching Search Strategies to History Students.
In Teaching Search Strategies to History Students I outline activities that you can use in middle school and high school classrooms (grades 5-12). When you purchase a copy of the e-book you can use the activities exactly as written (you have permission to use the images I’ve included) or modify them to meet your students’ needs.
I wrote Teaching Search Strategies to History Students to help you help your students go beyond the first page of search results. To that end, I provide guidance on using search tools and databases that students often overlook. These include tools like Google Scholar’s patent and court search, Get The Research, and myriad of online archives and databases.
Teaching Search Strategies to History Students was written for middle school and high school social studies teachers who have heard students say, “I can’t find anything on this.”
