The online databases were upgraded this summer that can have quite an impact on how your students learn. Reluctant readers or young readers tackling difficult text can use the read-aloud feature; research skills are easier to teach with the search strategy tracker; critical thinking can be enhanced when students are referred to relevant, related pieces of information. Search all the online databases with Com Cat, New features include:
• text-to-speech full-text articles
