      • Rubrics for Elementary, Middle and High School

  • 4. What should students know?
    • What is one expectation you have for your students in regards to research ?
      • What should students know when they come to you?
      • What should students know once they leave your classroom at the end of the year?
    • How do your expectations compare to the Skills Continuum ?
  • 5. What steps do I take to get students through the continuum?
    • Best Practices
    • Read through each section individually.
    • Some items to note:
      • Use of Subscription Databases and eBooks
      • Collaboration with Media Specialists
      • Time Management of Research Process
  • 6. Example using the continuum
    • In ninth grade, students are expected to “Continue to develop a working bibliography and differentiate between bibliography and Works Cited.”
    • With past projects, you always rush through or ignore the bibliography/works cited page because you lack time.
      • – You can collaborate with your media specialist to create an interactive lesson on creating WORKING bibliographies that are continually revised as students research to alleviate plagiarism.
  • 7. How Do I Teach This Stuff?
    • Resources
    • Linked Resources include:
      • A two-page list of websites that address all stages of the research process
      • Linked pages of websites specific to research skills in the Scope and Sequence chart
    • Added notes with each linked skill
      • Divided by grade levels
      • Descriptions of what is found on each link
  • 8. Example Using the Resources Page
    • In sixth grade, you might use the following website and form on the resources page to teach and explain the importance of evaluating websites:
      • Evaluating Websites
      • Website Evaluation Form
