Common Core specifies that if students are to be college and career ready, then they need to master how to research a topic and present it in a variety of perspectives such as writing and presenting persuasive arguments, informative/explanatory texts, and narratives. As part of the writing process, students need to conduct research from multiple print and digital sources, paraphrase their findings, cite their sources, avoid plagiarism, and develop formal citations for their sources.

Beyond writing in a variety of perspectives, students also need to master how to communicate their findings via a formal research paper, a digital brochure, an animation, a presentation, as well as communicate their ideas via a verbal presentation, blog, WIKI, and/or website.
The purpose of this hands-on workshop is to provide teachers with a variety of open digital tools so they can teach the six step research process (1. select your topic, 2. search for information, 3. take notes, 4. develop the information, 5. share the information and 6. evaluate your final product) while guiding their students to master the reading, writing, speaking, and listening standards.
