Britannica School Insights changes how you discover by bringing fact-checked information from Britannica and Merriam-Webster to the top right corner of your Google search results page. Powered by the world's largest verified general-reference dataset, Insights also finds unique relationships, uncommon insights and word definitions, providing deeper context, perspectives, and connections around English-language search topics. 

Special note: There are two Britannica Chrome Extensions in the web store. Be sure to pick Britannica School Insights because it will take you right to MeL and the leveled content Britannica provides.
