Making Research Matter
Roessing, Lesley
English Journal, v96 n4 p50-55 Mar 2007
Eighth-grade teacher Lesley Roessing designed an assignment that makes individual student research useful and accessible to the entire class. She outlines steps students take to create a guide to supplement their reading of "Waiting for the Rain: A Novel of South Africa." She then builds on the research experience in another unit by addressing issues of style and voice through a collaborative research and creative writing project. (Contains 1 figure.)
