PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Unfortunately, many of the research essays students write are exercises in paraphrasing someone else’s ideas, rather than an argument put forward by the student that is supported by research. The main reason for this is that they usually begin with Googling topics, hoping to find something they can write about. There is often little thought about their ideas before they begin to search. The essays, then, are a collections of other people’s ideas, not their own.

The graphic organizers in this product are ones I use to get students to approach the research essay as a thinking process. They can use them to explore what they know already and to record questions they have on the topic. Then, they can think about what information they need to find, as well as ways they can narrow their search.
