Narrow Your Search With Subjects

Searching by subject guarantees that your articles will actually be about ELA and don't just pick it up as a keyword. The method of searching by subject is the same in each of the education databases, although the exact terms are slightly different in each one.


1. In one of the search boxes type the subject term.

2. Use the drop down menu to select "SU Subject" OR "SU Descriptors" OR "SU Subject Terms"

3. Enter any additional keywords into the other search boxes. (ie: elementary or digital)
