If you are looking for a safe, reliable search engine look no further. This search engine searches only the 35,000 Web sites that a staff of research experts and librarians and teachers have evaluated and approved when creating the content on findingDulcinea (whose mission it is to only bring the best information for any topic from credible sites that have been selected by educators, librarians and tech savvy people). What this means for you and your students is the sites are previewed and recommended, therefore they provide rigorous, safe information without all the ads, and irrelevant search results.
There are several options to search with:
- SweetSearch4Me a search engine for emerging learners
- SweetSearch for School Librarians for content that helps students use the Web effectively
- SweetSites is organized by subject and academic level for students and teachers (this one alone is worth spending days exploring!) If you check only one link look at the teacher sites here
- SweetSearch Biographies for profiles of 1,000+ significant people
- SweetSearch Social Studies
I will definitely be back revisiting this search engine and the links it takes you to. It is truly one of my favorite finds thus far! As an educator always looking for sites to help with research, I almost just uttered Google who!
