EDU 461: Children's Literature: Education Databases

This guide will help students in EDU 461 perform research and create lesson plans based on children's books.

Although all of these databases contain articles on Education, you may find some more useful than others. For students taking EDU 461, I recommend Education Full Text and Educator's Reference Complete. Please note that additional databases may be found on the Levi Watkins Learning Center's website.
