Here is how it works:
Teachers submit the “ingredients” for a proposed research guide. The guide could include a description or lesson plan for a particular assignment, rubric, associated research sites and web tools that students may need in completing a project. The media specialist then enriches the teacher’s ideas by including other streams of information such as databases and search engine widgets, books available in the library, tips for research, citation rules etc. to create all-encompassing pathfinders for students. These guides encourage students to easily navigate a variety of resources at school or from home in a safe, structured environment.
Middletown North HS has been creating guides since September and the idea has really taken off! Bayshore MS has just started with their guides but anticipates the usefulness of this tool for the future.
