My GAME plan involves the incorporation of more varied assessment tools in my classroom and teaching my students how to research. This will allow them to utilize technology resources effectively. I have been able to find many different assessment ideas and have even pulled bits and pieces from other teachers and website. Before I can teach my students how to conduct a research activity, we have to spend some time using our school laptops so that I know they are familiar with how to use them correctly and care for them. This will take some practice for my students to get comforable and realize that the laptops are not just a toy but are an educational tool in our classroom.
My questions are:
Does anyone have any ideas about where to start with the research process for elementary students? I wanted to make an anchor chart with my students including some basic research practices but wanted to gather my ideas first so that I know where I want to go with it. Also, how did you teach students if a resource was a good source or not?
