Education: Background Information

This guide will introduce you to resources related to education, educators, and teaching.

Reference Resources

Reference materials are an excellent place to start your research because they can provide:

  • a broad overview of your chosen topic, and
  • a familiarity with the major concepts and terms associated with it.

A specialized encyclopedia and dictionaries are also good resources to browse when you are having trouble deciding upon a topic. In addition, an encyclopedia article will often conclude with a short bibliography, which can lead you to additional resources on your topic.
