Research Projects

Summer of 2008, I designed and programmed a new Research Project Organizer. After completing three collaborative research projects, 3rd graders will have the opportunity to select a topic of their choice.

The Research Steps page, explains each part of the research process. The video clips are still under development -- only the video under "Introducing My Topic" is active.

The Research Paper Project Organizer is complete and ready to go. You can try it out, but you won't be able to save your work.

You may view and try out project organizers at www.digitalpencil.org -- you will not be able to save your work.

Research Steps

Research Project Organizer

The "cartoon" characters which accompany each step in the process were created by a friend and cartoonist who illustrates children's books and is frequently featured in the New Yorker. Her name is Martha Gradisher. Martha also created our Library Tree for the Grandview Library Website.
