How I Use It
Use this site to find great resources on topics related to social studies, sciences, technology, education, careers and much more. Social Studies teachers might be drawn to this site because of the “On This Day” section. Each day there is a piece of history presented with pictures and related articles. The web guides have information for students on using search engines and navigating to identify if a site is credible. FindingDulcinea pulls resources for teachers and students that have been through a screening process. Plus, you can also change the language to Spanish.
My Take
I like that teachers students can jump on and use the free search engine. What the sites offers does seems a little limited. There are other sites out there that hold resources and allow for students to interact with the materials. FindingDulcinea is for consumption use only.
