During the second reading, they are asked to identify important concepts and ideas. For this task, they are given lined paper as well as a page for illustrations. During the third reading, students are asked to define the important terms they identified during their first reading.

When doing research, students will find many written documents that could be appropriate to draw from. However, it is important to analyze each. Why? Analyzing historical documents requires students to identify the purpose, message, and audience of a text. This worksheets is a graphic organizer that will guide students through the analysis of these documents.
One strategy to help students learn unfamiliar vocabulary is called: Guess the meaning. This ready-to-use worksheet has been designed to be used again and again, throughout the school year as students encounter new vocabulary words. Students will write each ‘new‘ word, what they ‘think’ it means and then after looking up the word in a dictionary, they will write an actual definition.
This layered research assignment gives students the opportunity to delve deeply into a topic and give students a variety of tasks from which to choose, all designed to guide and build a meaningful learning experience. Also, when using this layered approach, students will move through Bloom’s Taxonomy of knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
This resource is designed to be used with 6th-12th grade students and can be used for any subject/topic.
This resource will guide students through (step by step) three layers of research:
* The first (bottom) layer will give students 9 tasks of which they will perform all of them. This layer will help students get a good grasp of the topic and begin to gather the materials they will need to create a great project, (knowledge and comprehension).
* For the second (middle) layer, students are given 6 tasks of which they will choose to complete 4. Here, students will continue to gain knowledge and comprehension as well as begin applying (application), analyzing (analysis) and even some synthesizing (synthesis) of what is being learned.
* For the third (top) layer, students are given 9 tasks of which they will choose to complete 6. This top layer of tasks is truly designed for students to move further into synthesizing and evaluating (evaluation) of the material that has been studied.
