12 weeks beginning Feb 5th 2018 through May 7th 2018
No classes on 2/19, 3/12
Each individual student will choose a topic that is of interest to them to complete their research project on. The topic will be of non-fiction nature. After they have narrowed down their topic of interest, we will begin to work on the research process. The students will find information and resources to support their topic of choice. Then they will work on their organization of the information found by using one or more of the eight thinking maps that are used throughout each grade level. Finally they will be ready to write their rough draft, and go through the revision process followed by their final draft. Our last class will be dedicated to presenting our projects to the whole class. The goals and objectives of the class are the following: To develop oral and written communication skills. To develop effective creative thinking and expression in both oral and written communication. To develop independence to seek advanced knowledge and explore ideas. To use technology skills. To develop inquiry skills to discover new areas of study through meaningful and properly constructed questions. To develop research skills to pursue expanded knowledge and explore ideas. To develop skills in understanding and showing respect for self and others.
This course is limited to 6 students.
