The BESSIES are sponsored by The ComputEd Gazette and recognizes outstanding and innovative programs and websites that help educators facilitate a richer educational experience through technology.
The World Religions: Belief, Culture, and Controversy database is the latest addition to ABC-CLIO’s suite of online solutions. It is designed to supplement the teaching and studying of religions across the globe, enabling a deeper understanding of this complex subject.
Part of ABC-CLIO's American Mosaic Collection, The African American Experience database encompasses a variety of sources designed to highlight the importance of understanding African American history and its relation to greater U.S. history. Most recently, this database was enhanced with a wealth of primary sources and multimedia components related to the Harlem Renaissance, adding a rich tapestry of resources covering this important cultural movement.
“ABC-CLIO is committed to offering students and teachers the best tools possible to teach and learn these important and complex subjects,” noted ABC-CLIO President Beck Snyder. “To be recognized by the BESSIE awards for the fifth year in a row is an honor and a testament to this commitment. With new content being added regularly these living resources stay relevant, keeping students engaged, and helping them to build research, writing, and critical thinking skills.”
These ABC-CLIO Solutions databases are created for Middle and High School and integrate three powerful research components: authoritative reference content supporting multiple subjects in history and the humanities; topical explorations that align with major textbooks and can be used as core texts; and a continually growing set of analytical essays that model critical thinking approaches.
In addition to World Religions: Belief, Culture, and Controversy and The African American Experience, database topics include American History; American Government; World History: Ancient and Medieval Eras; World History: The Modern Era; Pop Culture Universe; The World at War; Issues: Understanding Controversy and Society; Daily Life Through History; The American Indian Experience; The Latino American Experience; and World Geography.
