UEN Staff Picks

Pioneer Library
Learning Express in Pioneer Library is a great resource for test prep, including national and subject tests.

New in eMedia
StoryCorps videos in eMedia combine oral histories with clever animation. Use these shorts as writing or discussion prompts, or just a little inspiration. For Mother's Day, be sure to check out "StoryCorps: Questions and Answers" where a young boy with Asperger's Syndrome questions his mom and "StoryCorps: The Icing on the Cake" about the sacrifices a hard-working mom makes for her children.
