I teach my students A LOT of research skills. I really enjoy guiding them to become “intentional researchers” and toss away their former haphazard research ways!
This year when I teach, I make the resources available on a Google Site for them to refer to after the lesson. I have used the term “haphazard research” so often with my students that I was inspired to make a T chart to identify the difference between “intentional research” versus “haphazard research”. Here it is!
The Google Site really expands on the concepts if you want more detail or handouts, etc.
