Research Projects In The Classroom
Whole Group Instruction/Research
You will read books during whole group that provides the "research." You'll also use schema maps that encourges your students to think and engage their knowledge of the subject area at the beginning and the end of each of the research projects.
Writing & Independent Research
Writing is a major part of our research projects and reinforces the students learning by writing about what they learned during whole group. There are also individual student journals for the students to complete in small group or independently. So you can easily differentiate the learning.
Your students will expand their vocabulary on the subject area.
Most of the TKS Research Projects include math & literacy centers that are subject area themed.
