Oakland youth go back to school next week, so the Oakland Public Library’s E-Resources Committee would like to share a couple of online resources available to OPL cardholders that can help with learning!
To access these and other online resources go to Oakland Public Library's Online Research and Learning page.
For K-8 Students…
World Book Kids: Provides thousands of easy-to-read articles with embedded multimedia for increased comprehension.
World Book Student: Packed with such research tools as Citation Builder, How to Do Research, Compare Places, Interactive Maps, and the World Book Atlas to help students get the most out of their research experience. We also have the Spanish version of this resource.
Middle School & High School
Gale in Context: High School: Includes articles on many subjects covered in high school such as history, government, and biographies.
Gale in Context: Science: Manipulate and explore 3D interactive models to visualize and understand concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science. Reference and periodical content provide additional context for further understanding.
Gale in Context: Opposing Viewpoints: Aimed at high school students and focuses on controversial topics. It is great for youth to deepen their understanding of key issues of our time and is great for debate preparation and persuasive essays.
TERC: Includes tutorials around basic reading comprehension, writing and math skills as well as lessons and practice tests on key subjects. Prepare for ACT and SAT tests. In addition, it provides support around tests required for specific professions.
