Reflection: Flexibility Cosmically Cool Planet Research! Day Two: Researching with Digital and Print Sources - Section 4: Independent Research


After our first day of research, I noticed there is one topic I want to make sure to address tomorrow.  That is to teach students what to do if they can't find the answer to the question they've generated. You'll notice I'll begin with this during my lesson tomorrow to support students in being successful with their research.
