The Research Process

  1. 1. A site created to address the research process among all disciplines and grade levels.
  2. 2. Maryland Common Core State Curriculum <ul><li>Essential skills and knowledge needed to master grade specific standards </li></ul><ul><li>FCPS Research Process Site provides: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Skills Continuum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Skills Scope and Sequence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Best Practices for Teachers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rubrics for Elementary, Middle and High School </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Research Process Resources </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. A Big Change: Increase in research skills particularly in Language Arts <ul><li>W7 CCR Anchor Standard </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focus questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>W8 CCR Anchor Standard </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And other research skills embedded throughout. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. What should students know? <ul><li>What is one expectation you have for your students in regards to research ? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What should students know when they come to you? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What should students know once they leave your classroom at the end of the year? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How do your expectations compare to the Skills Continuum ? </li></ul>
  5. 5. What steps do I take to get students through the continuum? <ul><li>Best Practices </li></ul><ul><li>Read through each section individually. </li></ul><ul><li>Some items to note: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of Subscription Databases and eBooks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collaboration with Media Specialists </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Time Management of Research Process </li></ul></ul>

  7. 7. How Do I Teach This Stuff? <ul><li>Resources </li></ul><ul><li>Linked Resources include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A two-page list of websites that address all stages of the research process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Linked pages of websites specific to research skills in the Scope and Sequence chart </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Added notes with each linked skill </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Divided by grade levels </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Descriptions of what is found on each link </li></ul></ul>
