Database Spotlight - Britannica ImageQuest


With Britannica ImageQuest, you can guide your students to hundreds of thousands of pictures that are appropriate with credible facts listed with each. There is an easy slider to enlarge or shrink the size of all of the thumbnails. You can click on an image for more information about the image. Also, from the picture quickview, a student can cite the information, print, download or email the information about the picture. You can also select multiple images, then drag and drop them into the "My Images" section of the screen for later access. This is a user friendly and credible resource for all grade levels.

Collaboration

During the first week of January I was honored to work with Mrs. Boyle, Ms. Card, Dr. DeMent, Mrs. Dugger, Mr. Hadden, Mrs. Love and Ms. Krohnert on various instructional activities and lessons ranging from differentiated lesson planning, to reading selections, to research lessons, to brainstorming a topic for a graduate school class. Do you have an idea for a lesson, or need someone to talk with? Come see me and I'll be glad to collaborate with you, too.
