#3 - Life is a Puzzling Thing: Exploratory Research (pp. 94-95)

Author: Janice Davis

By the end of this lesson, each student will be able to:

  • write a quality claim about an issue in today's society (life).
  • conduct a mini-internet research to determine if the claim is suitable for research or not.
  • evaluate a list of claims to select the best one for a research project.

It's time to put that internet safety to use!  Today we worked on mini-research in class.  Tonight you will need to review this and finish the task of mini-researching 4 of your possible claim topics.  When you finish, you should have a great idea for which claim you most want to research for the full project.
