99 Jumpstarts for Kids: Getting Started in Research

Front Cover
Libraries Unlimited, 2003 - Education - 225 pages
0 Reviews

Similar to the previous "99 Jumpstarts to Research" but designed for younger students, this book helps teachers and librarians to teach basic research and information literacy skills to children. To help them master the research process and narrow the limitless array of sources available on commonly researched topics in elementary and middle schools, students are taught a basic note-taking process and given specific source ideas and subject headings for each topic discussed. This book will be an invaluable tool to help school librarians and teachers broach the difficult task of beginning to teach the research process. Grades 3-8.
