Research Sources

"How does smoking affect the brain?"

RES fourth graders are collecting information to help them answer their research questions for their independent Capstone Projects. This morning Ms. Senning's class was using a variety of research sources as they gathered information. In the year 2014, information doesn't just come from books...or from the Internet! The scholars had excellent, thoughtful discussions with each other about how to tell if their sources were reliable. These projects are an opportunity for our scholars to practice their research and critical thinking skills as well as to learn more about topics they are passionate about.
