Encyclopedia Britannica is freely available to KS residents. The high school edition features some helpful study guides under the Learning Materials tab as well as news from The New York Times, a dictionary, biographical information, and a This Day in History feature. Students can also expand their search beyond the encyclopedia. For example, I searched Julius Caesar and found a solid article. To the right were links to Journals and Magazines, the Web's Best Sites, and Additional Reading specifically on Caesar. The web sites were particularly helpful. If you are in a hurry and want good information without a lot of fuss, this encyclopedia is a good place to start. One note: the audio tool feature is not as good as the text to speech feature built right into the Mac.
