Teaching Research Skills Remotely: Focus on MS/HS, Grades 7–12: Webinar
The old saying about teaching someone how to fish instead of just giving them a fish doesn’t just apply to food—it applies to knowledge, too. This webinar discusses three tools that can help students build their research skills: Source Reference, an easy-to-use reference platform designed especially to help students start their research while building better research skills; Issues & Controversies, which features pro/con articles exploring hundreds of hot topics in politics, government, business, society, education, and popular culture; and World News Digest, a go-to resource for context and background on key issues and events in the news.
The topics discussed include:
- How to easily build and discover context around a research topic within Source Reference
- How to introduce critical thinking when approaching news sources with World News Digest
- How to challenge a researcher’s personal inherent bias with Issues & Controversies
