Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
A rich compendium of creative ideas to integrate the Internet into elementary social-studies units. Fredericks outlines his Web-based research process, which is based on Michael Eisenberg and Robert Berkowitz's "Big 6" model. He gives examples of the best search engines for teachers as well as students and specialty search engines for lesson plans. The meat of the book is the array of unit plans, which can be used as is or to enhance and update units from existing curricula. Coverage includes "My World," "Neighborhoods and Communities," "Regions Near and Far," "History of Our Country," and "Our World: Yesterday and Today." Each broad unit has a short introduction, research questions, activities, and annotated Web sites and literature resources, as well as project suggestions.- Sandra L.
