Supporting teachers

Britannica® Spotlights, part of Britannica School, is a series of mini websites that focus on key dates or curriculum-specific topics. The websites bundle together relevant articles, learning resources and lesson plans to help teachers deliver effective and engaging lessons. With the flexibility to use the resources online or offline, Teachers can embed videos or print images with the click of a button.

Age appropriate

Whatever age the child, Britannica School encourages inquisitive minds in a safe online environment. We have created engaging features, such as quizzes, that encourage confidence in discovery and resources that make learning fun for younger children. For older students there is more challenging content and “how to” guides that help students prepare large projects and presentations confident in the knowledge that they are using accurate, fact-checked information.

Britannica School also has tools that enable parents to support their child’s learning, so teachers, parents and children can all work in partnership using the same resources.
