ESL & International Student Guide: Start Your Research

Resources for ESL & international students at UW Bothell & Cascadia College.

Find Background Information Online

Online reference databases are great places to find a topic and get started with your research.  They have short articles perfect for many projects. They also offer background information you can use to find books, articles, and more.

For best results, search for broad topics using one or a few search terms; for example, "ESL education".
