Google Search Tools Tip:
When you have students doing research for school projects there is a way to adjust the reading level through Google searches.  
  • When you are at the Google search page type in the topic you are searching for i.e. bill of rights, and then click search tools.  
  • After that click on all results and select reading level.  
  • You will then see a rectangle where you can select the level desired (basic is what some of our students will need).  
  • Click on the reading level and then the search will only give you information that is on that level.
