  • Description

Using the I-Search process, your middle grade and high school students will find new ways to enjoy the process of research. This innovative technique for creating research and term papers avoids the pitfalls and frustrations of traditional research methods by having students write in first person about the topics they’re interested in. With step-by-step clarity, this manual will help teachers and media specialists collaborate successfully to make the reading and writing connection click in their schools. 

Content includes:

• Starting the process
• Narrowing the topic
• Using information
• Assessing progress
• Writing the final paper
• Conducting in-service training
Appendixes provide sample questions, a time frame for keeping students on track, and student instructions for reading a chapter or magazine article for research purposes. Companion CD-ROM includes worksheets, tools, and sample I-Search papers.
