Enjoying Student Research Papers: Instead of One, Try Eight!
McFarland, Katherine P.
Discussing a teacher's effort to improve the research techniques of her secondary students, this paper outlines the implementation of controlled research projects. It suggests using many small projects to develop researching techniques, rather than one large "end-of-the-semester" project. The paper gives 8 different topic options for these "micro themes." It concludes that controlled papers mean more practice, more research, more interest, and more success. (SC)
