Explora Student Research


Watch this short tutorial — Designed for students in grades 6 through 12, the Student Research Center provides students in secondary schools with the most appropriate research tools to easily obtain the information that they need, searching popular magazines, reference books, photos, and more. Watch a tutorial on using Explora to find materials to support your research.

Students can pre-determine which content sources (e.g., magazines, newspapers, biographies, country reports, film & video) will be included with their search. They can also search their databases by topic heading, make use of an online dictionary and encyclopedia, explore the top searches of the day, and even limit their search according to appropriate Lexile reading levels.
