This powerpoint takes a class through an entire research lesson, including activities and quick assessment. Accompanying printables have similar title. This lesson hits the main points of research for a 7th grade class. Included topics are primary and secondary sources, relevant sources, reliable sources, tabloid, internet reliability, website evaluation (ranking), multiple choice questions, and reflection.
Teacher's note: I included 'diary entry' on the secondary source list as a test to see if students would catch it. Be aware that a diary entry is a primary source. Also, on primary source list, the question mark represents autobiography. Lead students to it if they don't come up with it on their own.
This is my introduction to research. I cover the material in much more depth before beginning a research project.
