Hauppauge, New York—January 6, 2012—BASCOM Global Internet Services, Inc., an industry-leader in curriculum tools for Pre K-12 and libraries, kicks off the new year with a new release of its Faculty Room—a free, online resource for teachers.

Content for the Faculty Room is hand-selected by BASCOM Educational Specialists who scour the Internet for high-quality websites to support a featured theme. Each month select websites, web-enriched lessons, and videos are chosen by our Specialists specifically for each grade level: Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle and High School. Also provided for each age-group are links to additional noteworthy dates in the month.
