Selecting my sources – Finding out new information
Getting into week 3, you will now be diving deeper into your inquiry. You will:
– think critically about the different sources you can access in order to undertake your research.
- Think about primary sources that you can connect with in relation to your topic or issue
- begin to create interview questions that you would like to ask your primary sources.
All of this will be accomplished with the support of your group members, during your mentor meetings, and your teacher
– Begin thinking about possible ways that you could take meaningful action with your topic/issue. Remember! There is more than one way that you can take action! Spread your creative wings! No fundraising or brochure making – step out of your comfort zone, think outside the box and come up with a more unique, creative way of acting.
– Set realistic goals for yourself start with:
- I have collected at least 10 note facts from different sources (record your sources as you go!!)
- I have collected at least 25 note facts (record your sources as you go!!)
- I have collected at least 50 note facts (record your sources as you go!!)
- I have collected at least 75 note facts (record your sources as you go!!)
- I have collected 100 or more note facts (record your sources as you go!!)
- I have used at least 1 primary source for my research
- I have used at least 3 secondary sources for my research
– Reflection. Blogging about and reflecting on your week at least once is a requirement. Your teacher will provide you with some possible reflection prompts for your blog. Remember! Visuals are always a great way to draw readers in to what you have to say. Post pictures of your work (brainstorming map for topics, Central Idea creation, etc…) to supplement your reflection.
