The Encyclopedia of Alabama's For Teachers site is specifically designed to help in the classroom by aggregating EOA content by Alabama's Courses of Study, where applicable. The content standards are identified by grade level and subject under the tab at the top of the page labeled "Teaching Standards." This feature should prove useful for finding articles that can be assigned to students or to help refresh and enhance your knowledge of the subject.
In addition to providing a list of relevant content, the site offers the option for teachers to save articles and multimedia specifically related to their lesson plans in customized folders. Registration for this feature is free. To create "My EOA" folders, follow the instructions given under the "Log In" tab.
The Encyclopedia of Alabama is a free, online resource on Alabama history, culture, geography, and natural environment. It offers articles on Alabama's famous people, historic events, sports, art, literature, industry, government, plant and animal life, agriculture, recreation, and so much more. EOA is similar to a traditional print encyclopedia, with its emphasis on authoritative content based on sound scholarship. The online format makes it a modern reference tool offering video, audio, graphics, and hyperlinks.
