Abstract:

The latest release of Rosen Publishing's Teen Health and Wellness database has retained the richness of award-winning content while adding features, new articles, and Web resources that will further increase its appeal, accessibility, and effectiveness for teens. The addition of video clips, health and personal finance calculators, and the ability for teens to submit personal stories and video segments make this product even stronger for teens of all literacy levels. While Teen Health and Wellness is highly valued and acclaimed in public libraries, the database offers much to educators with inclusion of lesson plans, curriculum correlations, opportunities for students to publish, and widgets that allow librarians to highlight this tool on the library or health teachers’ Web pages. The database interface and content are well targeted to a teen audience, and equally easy to use whether for academic or personal information needs. Teen Health and Wellness is in wide release in the United States, and a version customized to schools, colleges, and public libraries of Ontario, Canada has been in use for the last 3 years. The database will continue to be customized to work well with young people in other countries in the next several months. This product remains the best of its kind as an outstanding resource to serve the difficult problems many teens face, and a powerful tool in helping students develop essential twenty-first century knowledge such as communication, information literacy, personal responsibility, and especially problem solving skills.
