"Researching" with Third- and Fourth-Graders.
Liston, Barbara
Maryland English Journal, v8 n2 p26-28 Spr 1970
In order to instill in children the skills which will be basic to their school experience, words implying a process (such as "hemp,""parasite," and "vanilla") may be "researched" by third and fourth graders through the use of a dictionary, an encyclopedia, a supplementary book on the subject, and an interview with an adult. The child makes a drawing illustrating his understanding of the concepts involved and presents a brief report in class, using careful notes and visual objects. The class and teacher then constructively evaluate the report to determine whether the presentation was orally acceptable, informative, and interesting, and whether it showed adequate research. (MF)
