Description: From School Library Journal
Using the I-Search method, this manual introduces teachers and librarians to strategies to get students to move away from traditional research in which they merely restate information to a higher order of thinking. Duncan and Lockhart encourage researchers to ask the following questions: "What do I want to know?"; "Where can I find the answers?"; "How will I record the information that I find?"; "How will I show what I learned?"; and "How will I know I did a good job?" Along the way, they will learn about choosing topics, evaluating sources, note taking, presenting findings, and working with peers to develop better skills. Ready-to-use transparencies and copies of student I-Search papers are included. A welcome guide.

Product Description:
Today's elementary school students will become tomorrow's knowledge workers. How can librarians and teachers help children develop the critical thinking and information problem-solving skills they will need to be confident and flexible users of information in the 21st century?

This unique manual adapts the innovative and effective I-search research process for grades one through six. Here is a blueprint for helping students formulate questions leading them to personal discoveries, as well as strategies for teaching them to fashion those discoveries into information of their own. In addition to the educational theory behind the unique I-Search information seeking process, the authors provide lesson-plans, techniques, and evaluation tools for making the information search process an adventure for young students.
