Be a Better Searcher

Searching for information on the internet can, at times, be a mind numbing process.  With the wrong search terms you can end up with page upon page of irrelevant information.  Did you know that there are some simple tricks that you can use to make your search results better?
Being a better searcher just means understanding what words will work and why.  Google has a help page that gives an brief overview of what can make your search results more relevant.
Google also has posters, in PDF form, that have ways you can modify your search to get better results.  The posters are located in the Google Educator Area under the classroom posters link.  I have one of the posters next to my computer for quick reference.  It wouldn't hurt to have one posted in your room for students to reference.
