Finding a School in a Spanish speaking country

Your best bet for finding a school in a Spanish speaking country is to google "list of elementary schools" and then the country name or something like that.  I've found that Wikipedia (yes, Wikipedia) was actually a very good resource for this.  Once you find a school's name, you can use google to go directly to that school's website.

Research Databases

CTRL FIND Use "ctrl f" (pressed at the same time) to bring up a search box that will search on the page for whatever you type in (like "education" or "school.")  This will help you quickly determine if/where the word you are looking for is on the page,

  • World Geography: Understanding a Changing World
    username orhs
    password wildcats

    For this project, the best way to use this database is to use the drop down menu under "countries" and pick your country. Expand the navigation tabs down the left side of the page to learn more about the country.

    The FACTS & FIGURES section will give you data on GNP and what the educational requirements are in the country.
  • COUNTRY REPORTS
    Provides information on countries of the world.

    LOG IN RIGHT AWAY.

    Use the "countries" button and then select the country you are researching. (Don't use the search box.)

    The navigation buttons on the left will be really helpful for you, especially the one called STUDENT LIFE (if there is one; that is not available for some countries.)
 

Citing your sources:

When you use databases your citations are already there for you.  Scroll down to the bottom of the database article and look for the MLA citation. It's as easy as that!
