At Cherry Lake Publishing, our authors and editors are passionate about giving kids robust, engaging, and challenging materials that will prepare them to flourish in the multimedia Information Age. The implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) calls on educators to refresh and sharpen their skills in reading, writing, math...and research! Research in the Internet Age creates new challenges for search, comprehension, synthesis, and creation skills. In Navigating the Information Tsunami: Engaging Research Projects that Meet the Common Core State Standards, K-5, we've created our first book geared directly at teachers, administrators, and librarians. Expert practitioners in research pedagogy share their best tips and lessons in nearly 20 projects that invite students to think deeply, weigh choices, make decisions, and articulate them in digital or print projects. With an eye toward the how and not merely the what of quality research for emerging readers and young scholars, our contributors provide detailed guidance on how teachers can harness students' natural curiosity to go beyond fact-gathering and exceed CCSS expectations. From launching the lesson to comprehension checkpoints to the final summative assessment, we're here to help.
