Recommended by David Kay, LaGrange High School.

Please email additional ideas to david.kay@cpsb.org

The first two resources are available to Louisiana students for free.

World Book Encyclopedia


The World Book is a

great easy to understand source of background information on philosophy,
philosophers, and the specific issues of many LD topics (law, government, euthanasia, capital
punishment, Constitution, free speech, etc.). It also includes the World Book Dictionary

for definitions.

One excellent article for LD you can find here is "Values in America" by Phil Su
do in
ScholasticUpdate,

Feb 22, 1999. You can find it by clicking on
Student Resource Center

then click on
"advanced search" at the bottom right. Then in the first box type
values;

leave the box to the right of that
one set on "Title/Headline." On the n
ext line type
Phil Sudo

in the empty box and change the box on the
right to "author." When you search you will see the article "Values in America."


Other web sites:

The Louisiana Library Connection
-

Anyone with a library card from a Louisiana public li

can access this resource, which includes the EBSCO magazine database (possibly better than Infotrak)
and Facts.Com (great for current events). It also gives you another way to access Infotrak and the World
Book.

. You must have your library card number with you.

Liberalism, Values, and Lincoln

Douglas Debate


Excellent book of articles about LD from the mid
-
1990's prepared by the Free Enterprise
Institute, now available free as a pdf document. It includes articles by philosophers, college
debaters (at
the time
-

one is now a professor of philosophy), etc. and topics include things like applying logic to LD,
defining terms, analysis of various values and topic issues like justice and rights. Articles are very short
and to the point.

Bartleby.com
-
A great site for you and your students (complete works of Shakespeare, King James
Bible, complete text of classics no longer copyright prot
ected, and much more) The reference works
include the Columbia Encyclopedia (short articles) American Heritage Dictionary , Roget’s II: The New
Thesaurus, and several quotation books.

addition to topic specific terms, build a file of quotes on frequently used terms like "justice" and "rights."

On Liberty

by John Stuart Mill
-

This link contains the complete text of one of the most used documents

ty with the slightly archaic
writing style. Great ideas, though.
