Research & Synthesis: Six High Interest Research Modules

$24.99

We consider research and synthesis to be two of the most cognitively demanding processes associated with English class, and with academic thinking at large. In recent years, an emphasis has rightly shifted toward these skills, evident in the Common Core, but also in next generation standardized tests (e.g. the new SAT’s essay question, PARCC’s “Research Simulation Task,” and so on).
here’s what you can expect to find in your Research & Synthesis bundle:

– Six research & synthesis units
– High interest research topics (college ed, steroids, standardized testing, technology, video games, and zombies!!)
– Learning tasks that require students to evaluate sources from a rhetorical standpoint (for credibility and purpose)
– Discussion and writing tasks that demand analytical thinking and synthesis

Teach your students to conduct research the right way. Put the days of month-long research projects behind you.

Product Description

We consider research and synthesis to be two of the most cognitively demanding processes associated with English class, and with academic thinking at large.  In recent years, an emphasis has rightly shifted toward these skills, evident in the Common Core, but also in next generation standardized tests (e.g. the new SAT’s essay question, PARCC’s “Research Simulation Task,” and so on).

Standardized testing and state standards aside, these are some heavy hitting skills.  They can be tough to teach and tough to learn, but the payoff is huge and your students will reap the associated benefits for the duration of their lives.  (Sounds worthwhile when you put it that way, doesn’t it?)

Long story short, here’s what you can expect to find in your Research & Synthesis bundle:

  • Six research & synthesis units
  • High interest research topics (college ed, steroids, standardized testing, technology, video games, and zombies!!)
  • Learning tasks that require students to evaluate sources from a rhetorical standpoint (for credibility and purpose)
  • Discussion and writing tasks that demand analytical thinking and synthesis

 It’s important to note that each of these four units require students to engage in the same kinds of tasks, but with different subject area focal points.  As such, these units can easily be used interchangeably or simultaneously in “jigsaw” fashion.

All units are yours immediately via instant download and are formatted as PDFs and as 100% editable Word documents.

Teach your students to conduct research the right way.  Put the days of month-long research projects behind you.

TeachArgument represents the efforts of passionate educators across the country to inspire their students to become lifelong learners, thinkers, and lovers of literacy. All of our resources are consistent with this goal; every lesson and unit plan, every game, and every pop culture analysis was created with the intention of enhancing learning, deepening thinking, and fostering a love for reading and writing. It is our pleasure to share this vision and these materials with like-minded educators. You will notice that our resources deal primarily with “argument” — that is, rhetorical analysis, argumentative writing, and critical thinking. We are fortunate to work with teachers at almost every grade level, college writing professors, school administrators, and educational researchers. In turn, our materials are privileged to have been impacted by each of their perspectives. We build our resources on a Common Core framework, integrate the kind of thinking that is essential for success next generation tests, incorporate pedagogical strategies that align with new teacher evaluation frameworks, and all the while, hold true to the things we are most truly passionate about: literature, language, and learning.
