New York, November 17, 2011 – Student writers – over 28 million of them – regularly go to EasyBib.com, the world's largest online bibliography service, to create their bibliography page. Now, as a way to provide even more complete help with the writing process, EasyBib has introduced its new Writing Guides and Educator sections of the website (content.easybib.com).
Last year, EasyBib introduced its visual citation guides, helping students distinguish different source types, and understand where bibliographic data is found and structured. Now, with the Writing Guides, writers will receive assistance with the other parts of the research process, from brainstorming, to note-taking, to structuring their paper.
For the instructor, the Educator Section will provide professional development help covering key issues such as research trends (i.e. popular topics and sources), as well as hosting lesson plans that will help teachers teach a variety of topics, from citations to plagiarism, to new educational tools. And for added value, each lesson plan will show how that topic aligns with the common core standards.
"We want to provide not only bibliography and note taking tools, but educational resources for both teachers and students to scaffold information literacy skills," commented Neal Taparia, EasyBib Co-founder. "The new Writing Guides and Educator sections of our website will help with that goal. And users will want to continue to check in, because, over the course of the next few weeks, we will be introducing more and more content to these sections."
