1. LISA FLOWERS EDU 6606 TERM II 2011 MY TOP WEBSITES
When I look for information on the website I put in my subject and do a search, if I get a large amount of information. I will narrow down the parameters, such as the reproductive cycle of black bears, instead of just black bears.
Its also useful to get information from colleagues and friends.
If I find an article useful I will look for at their reference information and visit those pages and links.
My top 10 uses for information on the website are: Social, Financial, Guilty pleasures, Business, Research, News, Interactive Learning, Teaching, Learning, and Travel.
I love CNN I am a CNN junkie, website and television. I go online to check my phone when I first wake up in the morning, then make my coffee and watch it live, then check it periodically online throughout the day.
Local news and information
I started reading the Wall Street Journal in college and love the online edition for information about investing and business.

Website for learning European continents/capitals had my daughter use this site when she wanted to travel to Europe for spring break. She is not a fan of social studies so I wanted to find another way to get her excited about it. The site made it fun and educational.
