In this new book from Routledge and MiddleWeb, author Angie Miller shows how you can turn your students into informed citizens by teaching them how to research effectively. In today's information-saturated world research skills have moved beyond fact-finding, into fact-sifting, f...act-sorting, and fact-assessing . Miller shows you how to help students check sources, take good notes, make use of information, and synthesize and present information across the subject areas. She also shows how to make research a daily practice, not a one-time essay or project. With examples and handouts you can use immediately, this practical book is a valuable resource for educators seeking to engage students in their work and encourage them toward higher level thinking. Angie Miller is a middle and high school teacher-librarian in New Hampshire. The 2011 New Hampshire Teacher of the Year, the recipient of the 2017 New Hampshire Library Program of the Year, a TED speaker and a National Geographic Teacher Fellow, she writes, speaks, and runs professional development that advocates for the teaching profession and promotes the empowerment of student voice across the country.
