Are you struggling to figure out how to align your library research process with the new AASL Standards? Inquiry Based Research is an important part of a strong Future Ready Library program and in meeting the new AASL Standards.
Introduce your students to the Inquiry Research Process with my “Welcome to Inquiry” print and go unit or assign the Google Slides hyperdoc version in Google Classroom.
Students become empowered researchers as they learn to use the I Wonder Grid to write their own quality guided questions to help answer the big essential question.
To answer their questions, students will develop their own search strategies. Using library resources, your students will curate a list of at least three sources. During the synthesize phase, students will put the pieces of new information together to see how their thinking about their topic has changed.
The express activity allows your students to clearly identify their audience and determine how they will present their new knowledge.
Reflecting on their inquiry research process, students will respond to reflection questions. The hyperdoc version will prompt students to record a summary of their reflection question answers.
