During a major event like the COVID-19 pandemic, information often gets released—and shared—so quickly that it might not have a chance to be vetted or confirmed. Infobase is doing its part to make sure that doesn’t happen to your students! First on the list is Issues & Controversies, a database providing exclusive, extensive coverage of hundreds of today’s hot topics from both a supporting and opposing point of view, including topics related to the current pandemic. Next up is Today’s Science, which seeks to bridge the gap between the science taught in the classroom and what students are hearing about the pandemic from the news and other sources. Finally, there’s World News Digest, which provides context and background on key issues of both historical events and breaking news, including the current COVID-19 pandemic.
