Boost students' achievement and test scores in science, social studies, and more with the latest I-Search title for educators working in grades K-8. This new companion guide builds on I-Search, You Search, We All Learn to Research by focusing on content areas. Through 20 lessons you will, media specialists learn how to teach students to develop research questions, locate information, record information and findings, interpret their research, summarize and develop major points, list sources, write and present their reports, and more. Reading, writing, listening, and speaking standards are incorporated into every lesson to help prepare students for success on exams. Duncan and Lockhart show how to assess student performance, instructional methods, and become more proficient in designing and delivering lessons. Also included is a Collaborative Planning Guide for teachers and librarians, a student research journal for use in the classroom, a sample standards-based I-search unit, and a PowerPoint presentation for collaborating with faculty and administrators. The lessons, student journal, and PowerPoint presentation are reproduced on the CD-ROM for easy customization. Here's everything you need to integrate the I-Search into important content areas and show how it boosts standardized tests and authentic assessments.
