Discus Lesson Plan and Activity Contest

Tell us how you are making research fun and inviting in your classroom or media center by sending us your favorite lesson plan or activity that features Discus. We're exploring new, effective, and fun ways to teach students how easy it is to use Discus. We want students to know the difference between informed, peer-reviewed resources and the unreliable information they may find in internet search engines. Please include any handouts, slideshows, or other tools you use.
