This database can be a key to high school success. Find the wide-ranging information you need for term papers and reports. Read articles by thinkers on both sides of an issue. Get up to date news and facts that have been verified by a respected publisher or fact-checking source, and discover historical facts and images from primary sources. Explora has the search power to make your work stand out, when you use multiple reliable sources to make your point. Plus, it has the details you need to make footnotes or an accurate bibliography of those sources.
