How to Do Research? Kentucky Virtual Library Presents

I have found an amazing resource, while researching and planning the coordination of teaching research skills in our elementary school. This incredible website is a fantastic site for media specialists, technology coordinators, literacy specialists and classroom teachers in their quest for introducing and supporting research skills in elementary age students.


The site guides your students through the process of researching. It includes media, such as books, magazines & newspaper articles as well as websites. This website is useful, when you are planning your school’s research skill sequence across grade levels, as well as an individual grade level unit plan.
