Questia Media, Inc. has announced Questia Lesson Plans, the latest addition to its Questia Classroom teacher and student resource center that integrates the company's digital library content into class instruction. Questia Classroom is designed for ninth- through twelfth-grade instruction.

Questia Lesson Plans are written by qualified education professionals and delivered in an easy-to-use format that is consistent across all grades, searchable by subject level, and fully integrated with Questia's content and digital tools, according to the announcement. Each lesson plan includes reading resources from Questia's collection of more than 65,000 full-text books and more than a million articles focused in the English, language arts, and social studies disciplines.

Questia Lesson Plans provide teachers with materials that incorporate the online books and articles available through Questia. The lesson plans are available for a fee, and the cost is determined by the number of students. A search and browse tool enables teachers to sift through the lesson plan collection by keyword, subject, unit, standard, grade level, and reading level.

Questia Media's online academic library and research resource is accompanied by a digital toolkit that enables researchers to highlight text, properly cite passages, and automatically generate bibliographies and footnotes. In addition, Questia provides a personalized workspace for each user, with an individual bookshelf and reference resources.
