Middle School Education: Articles and Databases

Best Bet Database for Articles

When searching this database make sure to take advantage of the advanced searching screen.  Searching "Middle School" (use the quotation marks around both words to make sure the database searches it as a phrase) as one of your search terms will limit down your results, you can also use "sixth grade" (or any particular grade), "Secondary School", "Junior High", or "Intermediate School" each of these terms means something slightly different, know the definition of each.

Education Databases

•	Remember when searching in ANY database, use limiters to help find the best articles.  •	Limit your search to Scholarly or Peer Reviewed articles. •	Choose the last 5 to 10 years (depending on discipline), unless you are looking for historical perspectives. •	Take advantage of Boolean Operators (AND, OR & NOT) to help focus your search. •	Don’t automatically choose full text. Many articles can be found full text using Full Text Finder. •	When in doubt check with your professor OR Ask a Librarian for help!
