ERIC Search Tips

Open the database and click on the thesaurus link at the top of the page.


This is a thesaurus of educational terms that will help you build a better search.  It is great at helping you brainstorm synonyms to try, think of narrower topics, and see broader themes in your topic.

Put a term in the thesaurus search box, click browse, and choose a term in the results below.

The resulting page will often give you a definition of the term, include broader, related, and/or narrower terms, and show you terms that may no longer be in use but be synonyms.


Click a linked term to "explode" it and see terms related to it, or write some down to try in your search!
