What’s the 411? Infobase’s News and Issues Databases Provide Reliable and Relevant Coverage of Current Events
May 20 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am EDT
During a major event like the COVID-19 pandemic or a national election, 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 your students have access to reliable sources! 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. 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, climate change, etc., from the news and on social media. Finally, there’s World News Digest, which provides context and background on both historical events and breaking news.
