Dineilli's Classes

Fo' shizzle.

Here are a few ways to find information on your topics:

1.  BOOKS! 
in da hizzle.

There are some World War II books on the table behind you.  Check the title, table of contents, and index for your assigned topic or related topics.  (E.g., Navajo Code Talkers, Rosie the Riveter.)

You can also search for more books in the Birmingham Library.


Library databases contain information from published works. (E.g., magazine & newspaper articles, encyclopedias.)  They cost lots of $$$$ to use, and can only be accessed at school!

  • Facts on File.  Click on American Indian History, American Women's History, African-American History, or American History.
  • More databases are available with your public library card:  Go to the Los Angeles Public Library's Teen Homework Help site.

just a few of many possibizzle.
