International Education: Caribbean Resources in Education

This guide is to help locate information about (1) international education and (2) education in the Caribbean from a local perspective.

How to Find Resources in ERIC from a Jamaican or International Perspective

Use a general topic like reading comprehension in the first row. To look generally for articles with an international perspective, use foreign countries in the Subject heading field. See how this is used in the second row. To find articles with a specifically Caribbean perspecitve, search for keywords such as Jamaica*, Caribbean, etc. Use all three rows for a narrower focus.
