Discover Learning Tools
DiscoverySchool.com has added two new features to its educational Web site: Custom Classroom and Worksheet Generator. Teachers can use the site's Puzzlemaker feature to create their own K-12 puzzles, quizzes and other curriculum materials. Another of the site's features, Quiz Center, lets teachers create quizzes in five different formats: multiple choice, short answer, true/false, essay, or a combination of these. The Custom Classroom application lets educators create a personal account for saving these puzzles and quizzes. The Worksheet Generator includes a library of 12 templates and over 900 different worksheets in all subject areas, created by and for teachers. All of the teaching tools are free of charge, and new tools are regularly added to the site. In addition to the site's teacher services, there are student resources such as Learning Adventures and homework help. DiscoverySchool.com, Bethesda, MD, www.discoveryschool.com.
