To create a news feed for a topic you are teaching, enter a search phrase in the textbox above, as if you were doing a typical search on Google. Here are some tips:
  • Enter individual words that should appear in the stories you are looking for.
  • If you are looking for a person, or a phrase, type it inside of quotes.
  • If there is a word or term that should not appear in the news stories, then type a minus (-) symbol in front of the word.
  • If you are looking for stories in a specific publication, then add source: and the name of the publication, words seperated by underscores.
If you are looking for references to George Bush and education but not testing in issues of the New York Times, you would enter:

"george bush" education -testing source:new_york_times
