Research Like a Librarian: Using "Big6 Skills" for Better Grades!

The students were asked to read and fill in a graphic organizer, also taking note of how the information was presented (one was in verse) and point of view. We then discussed what we wanted to include in our biographies. It was time for the students to start choosing the person they wanted to research. All of our middle school students are completing this project. The Grades 5 & 6 students were required to choose a person of note from the Revolutionary War. I started out by putting up a list of 20 or so notable people from the revolutionary War.
