Scholastic Presents: 6 Online Research Skills

After a several month hiatus, I am back with a cache of articles! This piece in particular — “The 6 Online Research Skills Your Students Need” — addresses how we, as teachers, can help facilitate opportunities for students to strengthen their online research skills. Going beyond some of the more common adages like “Wikipedia is not a credible source,” this article addresses six specific areas where students often struggle with online research. More than addressing these areas, this article from Scholastic – Teacher also offers solutions for remedying these common research hurdles. Breaking each research skill down into three components — the skill, the challenge, and the solution — I found this to be a quick read with some solid information that could be applicable to a wide age group (grades 6-12)!
