  • …be able to use key word searches to find reliableacademic, and scholarly sources to deepen our research process.

Monday we are working on understanding the stimulus materials a little bit further. We will discuss themes and connections between the materials through a poster activity and string activity.

On Tuesday, students will use what they learned on Monday and begin to create a research questions that is a single question, and debatable and re-searchable. This process will be continued through out the week, as students complete research to refine their question.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be a mix of research and writing. By Friday, at 11:59 pm, students will have a research log completed and submitted to Google Classroom. There will be further directions for how to complete this research log, on Google Classroom.
