“Intentional Research” versus “Haphazard Research”


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.
