Sorry I’m a little late with my post this time everyone. I normally try to post my handouts and videos on Mondays. But as we approach parent/teacher conference week, I find myself working later and later every day. So please forgive my tardiness in posting this a little late.
In another week or two, I plan to have my students start their “World Leader” research paper projects. This is one of the first handouts I give them. It’s a good “kick-off” for a research paper, I think.
Over the last two weeks, I’ve offered free handouts for doing Wikipedia research, right? Well it wouldn’t be a true research project without offering you a free World Book Encyclopedia Worksheet that’s printable for any topic!
The one I use is ideal for getting your students to read nonfiction with the common core state standards initiative in mind. You can choose to have them research scientific topics like inventors or the history of soap making. You could have them research world monuments, bodies of water, or mathematical concepts. Heck, you could even have them research the very idea of research…
Next week I’ll offer some lists of possible biographical topics for research papers, so please watch for that. And if you decide to use the document below, be so kind as to like it on FB, tweet about it, or in some other way spread the word about this website. Thanks!
