Scaffolded no-prep printables for ANY Research Project topic!
This comprehensive Research Project Resource Pack contains all the components needed to implement a research project within your classroom. In this product the research process is separated into stages and within each stage are ready-to-go graphic organizers and activities to support all types of research based projects.
The skills that students learn when conducting research are fundamental to lifelong learning, and I have created this resource specifically to help support students in developing and practicing these important skills!
The process has been divided into the following stages:
- Exploring the Topic
: (Brainstorming process; exploring what we know; learning how to write strong research questions; planning research questions connected to topic)
- Preparing for Research
: (Creating a 'Research Portfolio' to organize notes; identifying suitable sources; learning how to use keywords in Internet search engines effectively; identifying key words in our research questions; learning how to note take and paraphrase; practicing note taking and paraphrasing activity)
- Collecting Information
: (a wide range of note card templates provided for student choice; MSA style referencing cards; Bibliography template)
- Organizing our Information
: (using information to generate sub-topics/paragraph main ideas; refining our topic/thesis statement)
- Presenting our Information
: (identifying suitable presentation options; writing to-do lists and setting personal goals; graphic organizers to plan essays, brochures, PPT/Prezi presentations, posters, storyboards; editing checklists; peer editing feedback form; final project submission checklist)
- Reflection and Assessment
: (general rubric to assess the research process; personal reflection activity)
- A list of helpful websites is also included
