This site is a great way to get students to practice their vocabulary–or other subjects–in preparation of the SAT test, while having a little bit of fun and being altruistic along the way. It lets students easily choose different subjects to gain new knowledge or review.
This site is a wonderful resource to help with documenting sources, especially websites. A student can get the name of a website and use various formatting methods, such as MLA, or a student can plug in the various resources himself. It is also terrific about putting the citations into alphabetical order, as well as indenting and spacing the citations correctly.
