Students and Teacher


Perceptions
PHMS students see the LMS
as a teacher

Sometimes other teachers


are surprised that an LMS
makes the same amount as
classroom teachers.

Databases and Instruction


Fee-based databases are
emphasized due to their
credibility
Students learn that fee-based
content is more authoritative
compared to Internet sites
such as Wikipedia
Teachers encourage students
to use databases when they
require multiple sources

Dewey Skills (Secondary

PHMS with Dewey skills as
