Useful as a check-in tool for students to see where they are in the research process. Helpful to gather info on comprehension quickly an also to provide immediate feedback.
Excellent synopsis and thinking about ways to turn research into the curation skill that students already are using in their lives. I particularly liked the statement about having a conversation with your content: "By having a conversation with their resources, students found themselves thinking instead of repeating, synthesizing instead of summarizing."
With the emphasis on argumentative writing that is coming with the CCSS, students will be needing the fresh thinking approach that is written about here.
Well-written and makes exciting points that should give fresh thinking to teachers and librarians who work with students doing research. Loved the example that used Livebinders.
Colorful graphic outlining the basic six steps to good research. Includes links within the sections that may be specific to Kentucky. There is a flash version as well as a text only version and a glossary. Well made.
