"Research Logs" - a set of resources designed to give students scaffolding for almost any research project.
The resources could be used in an English, science, or social studies class for research essays or presentations on any topic.
Included in this unit are...
* Four Student Research Logs that help students keep track of information from different digital and print sources
* MLA Documentation help -- handouts with examples and explanations of both in-text or parenthetical citations as well as fill-in-the-blank Works Cited entries for several different types of sources, and an in-text citation worksheet
* Three graphic organizers for different ways of organizing information students find in their research: compare and contrast, cause and effect, and a timeline
* Information to help students understand what quotations and citations are (I'm always surprised at how much my 8th graders struggle with this concept) and how to include them in an essay or presentation
These resources are linked to Common Core Standards. The product will come as both PDF and Word files.
