Student Research Skills and Techniques. ERIC Topical Bibliography and Commentary.
Smith, Carl B., Ed.
Many methods of student-conducted research exist. Within these methods, four stages are evident: Presearch, Search, Interpret, and Report. This topical bibliography and commentary delineates and discusses each of these specific stages in turn. The bibliography/commentary points out that students can best learn about conducting research by having clear-cut guidelines, being shown how to perform each step from start to finish, having the opportunity to confer with peers and teachers on their progress, and having each step broken down into smaller, more manageable tasks. It also enumerates six practical ideas a teacher can implement, which can lead to a more expressive approach to doing research. (Contains 4 Internet addresses and 12 references.) (NKA)
