With the upcoming focus on non-fiction documents in education across all curriculum and the increased need for students to master research skills before entering higher education, this all purpose cover sheet is successful with both teachers and students. With the clean and user friendly layout, the cover sheet prompts students to locate citation information of a non-fiction article, paraphrase, summarize, identify tone, author's purpose, and even prompts them to personally connect to the material. Tested and approved by a team of teachers across time. This is a tool we bring out over and over again. Especially as we ask students to gather non-fiction articles independently. We have them attach the cover sheet on top of their annotated articles as part of the research process- before they write.
