As students rely on the Internet for research more and more, I think it is important that we teach them to complete online research effectively. Gone are the days of the index card being used for source cards and note cards as our students move towards completing and organizing all of their research in a digital format. Today’s students need to know how to not only use the internet to search for information but also how to organize their online research.
This unit was designed as an introduction to research, although it can be modified to meet the needs of your students. You can easily add rigor to this unit if your students are ready for more advanced research assignments.
