Description: From School Library Journal
With the goal of creating independent, self-directed learners, Rankin supplies strategies for teaching the research process, from "presearch" questioning through the assessment of finished products. Believing that students should think critically at every stage of a project, she devotes a thorough analysis to such elements as managing time, reading for information, and preparing visual presentations as well as to the more traditional research components of searching and note taking. A clear understanding of the habits and frustrations unique to middle schoolers gives authority to the numerous handouts, activities, and practical suggestions provided. While no single chapter addresses technology specifically, all of the advice relates to both print and electronic resources.

She also explores the roles of time management and the visual display of information, and she outlines techniques that can help practitioners reach their own insights and conclusions about teaching the research process.
