Research Process

How many days should students research?

Allow at least 1-2 periods for student research. If possible, reserve library time for student research. Consult with the librarian ahead of time to pull WWII books for the students. Groups should write at least five to seven research questions on their selected date. Students should take notes from at least three resources, one print source, one reference source (internet or print), and one internet source. Select the amount of class and individual research time.


What sources should my student use?


We recommend that students use at least three sources, one print source, one reference source (either internet or print), and one internet source.
