Do you ever want to pull your hair out trying to teach research to students??? This product tries to simplify the research process. Instead of using actual index cards for notes, this is a handout with several blank index cards. This is a great tool for introducing research and it makes is very simple for the teacher to look at notes quickly. I've used this with my freshman English students and I color code the paper when I print them off. I use this with the Blank Source Cards as well (see other products) and have the students highlight each source card with the coordinating color of the note cards printed off on the colored paper (i.e. note cards for source one would be printed on blue paper and then highlighted in blue on the Source Card page). Makes research a breeze!!! This is the Excel version that can be edited.
