Parents – Did You Know About Google Scholar for the Upcoming School Year?

Subscribe to 103.7 The Loon on

Most central Minnesota students return to school for the 2017/2018 school year on Tuesday. This means homework begins again. You’ve got to check out Google Scholar!

Back in the 90’s when I graduated high school in Fridley, these tools weren’t available. My parents had just as hard of a time as I did trying to get through the school year with studying and researching. Actual books and libraries were the only resources we had for getting answers and preparing for assignments that were due.

Google Scholar has been around for about 6 years now, but they’ve stepped it up to a new level recently to make it a very interactive experience, and not just for searching literary and scientific subjects.

There’s a lot of things with Google Scholar that are REALLY helpful for college students, but if you have a middle or high school student, many parts of it are completely in line with the curriculum our students deal with as well.

If you find yourself searching Google for a ton of things daily, then try it on Google Scholar, it’s a huge time saver in my opinion.
