  2. 2. Eureka! Research Skills The information age requires students to be shown skills needed to do research. We will discuss how to help students develop plans, gather, organize, cite resources and then present the research. • Jerry Blumengarten • @cybraryman1 http://cybraryman.com/.html !2

  6. 6. Cow Power 40 percent of all manure from New York dairy farms goes through the anaerobic digestion process, which captures methane from manure and generates clean, renewable energy. The energy produced from this effort could power 32,000 homes while strengthening the economic vitality of New York's dairy farms. It also would reduce New York's greenhouse gas emissions by 500,000 metric tons of carbon, equivalent to taking 100,000 cars off the road. http://www.usdairy.com/Newsroom/2009PressReleases/Pages/ RenewableEnergyfromManureBecomesRealityforNewYork.aspx !6

Research and Information Fluency Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. a. plan strategies to guide inquiry. b. locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media. c. evaluate and select information sources and digital tools based on the appropriateness to specific tasks. d. process data and report results. !9
  10. 10. The Common Core English Language Arts Anchor Standards for Writing emphasize that the acquisition of a set of research skills are required for success in college and career. Student need to be able to: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.7 “Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.” CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.8 “Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.” CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.9 “Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.” !10

  36. 36. Old newspapers are a boon for Ga. teacher's history classroom 
 World history teacher Clint Decker takes his highschool students back in time with news stories about significant historical events with wellpreserved editions of their local newspaper, the Rome News-Tribune in Georgia. Some of the biggest news stories of the 1960s, '70s and '80s -such as the moon landing -- are chronicled in the newspapers saved by Decker's wife's great-greatgrandmother, who sealed the newsprint tightly in aluminum foil to protect them from moisture and light. "These are big national stories but to see them covered by the local paper brings it home for them. It makes them relate to this history a little better," Decker said of his students at Armuchee High School. Rome News-Tribune (Ga.) (9/22/13) !36
