21st Century Research Skills!
Second semester starts the beginning of the spring course for the 9th grade freshwomen. Lots of exciting things are happening in class. We started off with Ethics, and from there jumped into Internet Safety, Copyright and Website Evaluation. Students are learning quickly that the Internet is a great resource but should always be used wisely and research should be effective to ensure valid information. Visit our course Wiki to see the latest lessons on Website Evaluation. http://techresearchskills.wikispaces.com/3.+Website+Evaluation
Next month, the students will spend some time with our Librarian to learn how to search databases and gather data. All of these skills will then be applied to their course curriculums to help them to produce quality work!
