Synopsis: This work explains how the I-Search process works. Intended to help students to create research and term papers which avoid the pitfalls and frustrations of traditional methods, the search for information becomes a primary focus, along with the use of the first-person voice.
From School Library Journal:
This outstanding manual explains the I-Search process, an approach to research and writing that uses students' own interests to generate ideas and guide research. The method is adaptable to projects from third grade to graduate school. Tallman and Joyce offer clearly reasoned discussions of the whys and hows of I-Search, examples of student experiences and writing, and pertinent worksheets. They begin by explaining how to encourage students to find "topics that choose them." Next come strategies for helping students build on what they already know, show what they've assimilated by keeping learning logs, and learn how to make meaning out of texts by completing "double-entry drafts": one column has a fact gleaned from the text, the other has a question or other student interpretation of the fact. There is also a chapter on assessment and guidelines for collaborative planning and teaching between teachers and media specialists. Final chapters outline formats for in-service training and connect the I-Search experience with information literacy. Appendixes contain examples of students' final projects, suggestions for how to interview students about what they've read, and an explanation of how to distill what's important in a text while reading. An extensive bibliography and workable index round out the book. Readers will be eager to go forth and become I-Search facilitators.?Marcia Brightman, Library Media Specialist, Mark's Meadow Laboratory School, Amherst, MA
