iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanRT @CELeadership: Lets get started...Q1 - What are your schools doing now w info texts & research? #litlead
11
smduprezsonia duprez#litlead sonia duprez - elementary 2-5 Philadelphia I am looping for a four year project
12
drweinthalDr. Edie WeinthalWe have a scaffold approach and do something different (for different audiences) on every grade level #litlead
13
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboHi, I'm Anna Roseboro, Secondary Liaison to CEL. Author and former department chair.
. #litlead
14
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanI'm seeing a wide range of info text/research work in schools. Some is wow, while others ugh. #litlead
15
MrBronkeChristopher Bronke#litlead well. We are working on a revision to that...trying to make the info text exp and research less binary and more about perspective
16
heatherroccoHeather RoccoI am piloting an inquiry project w/ my students. They pick the topic & create a blog to show their learning. #litlead
17
CELeadershipCEL@iChrisLehman What do the "wow" ones include? look like? #litlead
18
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman@MrBronke sounds really interesting, say more? #litlead
19
BillRawsonBill RawsonWe're increasingly trying to differentiate our research projects to accomodate individual interests #litlead
20
smduprezsonia duprez#litlead changes year to year just came out of more self-selected research to a more traditional immigration/historical fig. style research.
21
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanOnes that go beyond the 8-week-notecards-project of long ago. Digital is adding. Or just being more about LEARNING than stuff. #litlead
22
MrBronkeChristopher Bronke#litlead. just trying to look at research topics from multiple view points as opposed to just the "it's good" "it's bad" take on an issue
23
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanMy worry is if Ss go thru a whole "research project" and come out not really having learned anything - topic or skills. #litlead
24
heatherroccoHeather RoccoDoes research still mean submitting a paper at the end in your schools? #litlead
25
smduprezsonia duprez#litlead I see my kids bored this year. Trying to breathe life into a curriculum I inherited for one year
26
BarbKeisterBarb Keister#litlead I'm a K-4 lit coach. Love the topic! #ccss has really changed research in elementary
27
JuleeMurphyJulee MurphyA1: Building up content & exploratory resources in our library collections 2 support learning objectives & project based learning. #litlead
28
MrBronkeChristopher Bronke#litlead it's more of what might all the different invested parties value on a specific topic/issue
29
CELeadershipCELQ2 - How do we best guide students to choose topics? #litlead
30
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanAgreed! RT @BarbKeister: #litlead Im a K-4 lit coach. Love the topic! #ccss has really changed research in elementary #litlead
31
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanI love the #ccss emphasis on SHORT and long research. #litlead
32
MrBronkeChristopher Bronke#litlead good question, @heatherrocco we are using research as a way to tackle speaking and listening. So for us, no. Not always
33
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman------> Q2 - How do we best guide students to choose topics? #litlead
34
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@BarbKeister Tell us more. In what ways? #litlead
35
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboWe looked at what one could expect from different domains..com, .org. .edu. .gov. .net, etc. What are their biases? why on the web? #litlead
36
drweinthalDr. Edie WeinthalMy "wow" is students presenting to authentic audiences on topics they have researched...and the creation of real products #litlead
37
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanA2 - If we are teaching students the skills of research, then we cannot just "assign" topics/sources. That is part of process. #litlead
38
BarbKeisterBarb Keister“RT! Long overdue@iChrisLehman: I love the #ccss emphasis on SHORT and long research. #litlead”
39
CELeadershipCEL@iChrisLehman You emphasize giving students choice in your book. What advice do you have to help Ss make wise decisions? #litlead
40
drweinthalDr. Edie WeinthalTopics have to be negotiated student choice #litlead
41
teachcmb56Colette M BennettYikes! Q2 already? A few minutes late and I'am so far behind! #litlead
42
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboTo guide students, consider resources, time and their interests and ways to connect to other topics and courses. #litlead
43
MsHoughtonMs. Shannon HoughtonYES. RT @iChrisLehman I love the #ccss emphasis on SHORT and long research. #litlead
44
MrBronkeChristopher Bronke#litlead A2. I start by showing ex of research in real life. For example, I research about my fav sport teams. Gets them to think diff
45
gabesmom1997Becky AndersonA2: Help students understand who they are as learners and as community members. Through self reflection, ideas and topics emerge. #litlead
46
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanA2 - Choosing topics really comes from jumping in broad ("bears"), seeing what is available 1st, then follow interest (bear dens). #litlead
47
ajr1206Anna J. Small RoseboShort research may just be background info to better understand book or article being read by whole class. #litlead
48
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanRT @MrBronke: A2. start showing ex of research in real life. I research about my fav sport teams. Gets them to think diff #litlead
49
BarbKeisterBarb Keister@heatherrocco Love that K-2 is shared research w/ emphasis on process of research.Short research in 3-4 across content areas- yes! #litlead
50
teachcmb56Colette M BennettThe Early College Experience class I teach suggests student inquiry based research; usually tied to essential questions #litlead
51
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman@MrBronke Love this! I agree, when WE research it's exciting and passionate (cell phone to buy? favorite team? vacation spot?) #litlead
52
JuleeMurphyJulee MurphyA2: offer samples of topics through article snippet, video, problem that needs solution. Give students the power to choose. #litlead
53
heatherroccoHeather RoccoI am using @KellyGToGo's Article of the Week concept to show how writers do research for even short articles. #litlead
54
gabesmom1997Becky AndersonA2: Exposure 2 wide varieties of info, news, media, experts, books, and resources. That background knowledge helps guide interest.#litlead
55
meghanamandaMeghan MarohnHope I'm not too late to join-- teach HS English to freshmen and juniors, & I am fortunate to have @heatherrocco as my dept. chair #litlead
56
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanOur next question is about planning by looking at student needs/strengths first. #litlead
57
drweinthalDr. Edie Weinthal@chrisLehman Passion is such an important word to drive student interest #litlead
58
SOMSlibraryMrs. MalespinaHi Elissa Librarian from NJ just joining now sorry #litlead
59
gabesmom1997Becky AndersonA2: Model questioning. #litlead
60
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@iChrisLehman Have had students research career paths. What's needed to get started? Cost of college or special training.
#litlead
61
drweinthalDr. Edie Weinthal@meghanamanda You are lucky!! :) #litlead
62
heatherroccoHeather RoccoWeekly we read a news article or op-ed and spend some time talking about where the info in the piece came from & is incorporated. #litlead
63
CELeadershipCELQ3 - How can we pre-assess the level of research experience our Ss have? #litlead
64
SOMSlibraryMrs. MalespinaMake a livebinder filled with information and video it works well with student #litlead
65
gabesmom1997Becky AndersonI am a 3rd-5th grade multiage teacher in a school where generative curriculum and inquiry are both foundations for learning. #litlead
66
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@heatherrocco This is important skill. To know and understand perspective of writer, website, etc. #litlead
67
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman------>Q3 - How can we pre-assess the level of research experience our Ss have? (I think this is KEY to gr8 instruction) #litlead
68
JuleeMurphyJulee Murphy@CELeadership good question. #litlead
69
timjteacherTim ToewsRT @SOMSlibrary: Make a livebinder filled with information and video it works well with student #litlead
70
drweinthalDr. Edie WeinthalQ3. With smaller, more focused assignments #litlead
71
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@meghanamanda Hi Meghan!! So excited to see you here!!! #litlead (My teachers rock, by the way. I am the luckiest dept chair there is).
72
SOMSlibraryMrs. MalespinaA3: You could make a up a google form and survey students on their knowledge and then offer differentiated instruction. #litlead
73
BarbKeisterBarb KeisterGood point!@ajr1206: Short research may just be background info to better understand book or article being read by whole class. #litlead”

75
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@CELeadership Ask students about past exp. Determine what they know and need to know based on observing them research in class. #litlead
76
drweinthalDr. Edie Weinthal@heatherrocco...maybe.. :) I've got mine here too!! Go, NJ!! #litlead
77
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanA3 - I think quick assessments can help b4hand. Give an article and ask students to "show off" their best note-taking. #litlead
78
MrBronkeChristopher Bronke#litlead A3--I wish I knew. I like to start simply by asking them to define research Ask what that term means to them. It reveals a lot
79
JuleeMurphyJulee MurphyA3: begin with Pre-activities or a mini research project conducted as a group. #litlead
80
meghanamandaMeghan MarohnMaxine H.Kingston has described the concept of doing research backwards, an idea that may appeal to students #litlead
81
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanA3 - or read aloud 2 short texts on same topic and ask them to write "to teach others about this topic" to see how they use info #litlead
82
teachcmb56Colette M BennettOur 9th graders are starting research based on non-fiction books they chose; we are learning what they need as we go #litlead
83
BarbKeisterBarb Keister"@teachcmb56 Any ideas on helping 3-4 develop good essential questions? #litlead
84
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@MrBronke Could also list terms and resources. Ask students to star, check or minus ones they've used, heard about, have no idea. #litlead
85
meghanamandaMeghan MarohnIn this model, research is wishing for some historical or literary reality and then doing research to see if it ever happened #litlead
86
iChrisLehmanChristopher LehmanA3 - assessment is best aligned to your unit goals, see what you don't actually have to teach(!) & what needs more time #litlead
87

elizasblueElizaEliza joining late. I teach 7th & 8th grade writing and section of 7th grade reading (to my self-titled class: The Unknown Readers) #litlead
89
heatherroccoHeather Rocco@iChrisLehman Do we give a short research task & see how they do? Assess how well they find good resources? Or take notes? #litlead
90
BarbKeisterBarb KeisterRT @heatherrocco: I am using @KellyGToGo's Article of the Week concept to show how writers do research for even short articles. #litlead
91
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman@BarbKeister it only comes after they dig a little into books, it can't be fabricated out of the blue ahead #litlead
92
drweinthalDr. Edie WeinthalWe have to break down the process and "chunk" it to really watch what students know/understand #litlead
93
elizasblueElizaRT @iChrisLehman: A2 - Choosing topics really comes from jumping in broad ("bears"), seeing what is available 1st, then follow interest ...
94
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman@heatherrocco I think it can be all or just part. Assess the things you MOST need to know for planning. #litlead
95
smduprezsonia duprez#litlead Makes me wonder: where should kids start once they have text in hand?
96
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman@elizasblue hi! thanks for joining! #litlead
97
teachcmb56Colette M Bennett@BarbKeister One class was lit based. Topics included: What does it mean to be human? and How do we define what is good? #litlead

99
iChrisLehmanChristopher Lehman@meghanamanda sounds so cool #litlead
100
ajr1206Anna J. Small Rosebo@drweinthal The old gradual release of responsibility works. Start together on small projects. Then small group, then individual. #litlead
