The Gateway to Educational Materials is a search engine site for teachers looking for Web resources targeted to specific academic subjects. The site’s resources are searchable by keyword phrases or users can browse the site’s catalogs. These sections are broken down by grade levels, subjects, or activity types. There are more than 50,000 educational resources available within the site’s domain, much of it provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Public Broadcasting Service, National Science Foundation and more than 700 other content providers. The site, sponsored by the National Education Association, also features a digitized database of academic standards from each state, allowing teachers to select resources that align with their content needs.
