Is there a website that can teach me how to correctly use APA style in my term paper?
Purdue University offers Online Writing Lab at no charge. According to owl.purdue.edu, "These OWL resources will help you learn how to use the American Psychological Association (APA) citation and format style. This section contains resources on in-text citation and the References page, as well as APA sample papers, slide presentations, and the APA classroom poster."
Subject: Study Skills
My child's 9th grader teacher said the school offers online databases and websites that can help her with assignments. How can I help my child learn how to use these resources?
Your child should schedule a time to meet with the school librarian or media school coordinator to learn which websites and databases the school offers a subscription to, and get a guided tutorial of how to use these sites. Take a copy of their class schedule to get a customized list of sites that will be helpful to them this semester.

What website (other than Wiki-pedia) can my fourth grader visit to find out information about North Carolina for a history project?
Visit the website NCpedia.org to learn about North Carolina's unique resources, people, and culture to enrich, educate and inform. This website is coordinated and managed by the North Carolina Government & Heritage Library at the State Library of North Carolina, a part of the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. The website says "The encyclopedia contains articles covering a broad spectrum of topics and resources about North Carolina, including: historical time periods, subjects, and events; biographies, including North Carolina’s governors; counties and government; geography and environment; business and economy; historical places and monuments; natural resources and natural heritage; and many others. NCpedia also includes thousands of images."
