Why & How to Use These Databases for Teaching and with Students? 

From the CA State Library site: 

"Read the article “Online educational resources for deep literacy and learning are available for all California students and educators,” published in the September 2020 issue of California English." 


"The journal of the California Council for the Social Studies, The Social Studies Review, included an article about this project and how the online resources can be used for history and social studies. Read the article “Beyond Textbooks: Utilizing the California K-12 Online Content project for robust research and learning,” published in January 2020."
