Research - Reflect and Connect
Keep track of your responses to your reading and make connections.
Find, print, read, and annotate a Wikipedia article, a current news item, or a blog post that is related to your research question. Annotate every paragraph with questions, opinions, reactions.
You can do this on paper, or you can copy the article, news item or blog post into a Google Document, or use Crocodoc. Check for articles in our Youth Voices folder on Cocodoc. Also add articles you find into a folder there as well.
After annotating use one of the following:
- General Response to a Non-Fiction Article to write a response to a news article or a blog post in a Google Document.
- Response to a Wikipedia article to write a text-dependent response to a Wikipedia article in a Google Document.
Create a first draft in Google Docs. Get a response from a couple of peers and a teacher, then spell check and proofread one more time. Finally post your response as a Discussion on Youth Voices.
For this task, choose one of the following places--OR use a source your teacher gives you, perhaps on Crocodoc or Gooru--to begin your research:

When you have finished your annotations, and you have written and posted your response as a Discussion on Youth Voices, click the Post Comment button here (on P2PU), and add links to your Youth Voices Discussion Post or Comment and to your annotations that you have done on Docs or in Crocodoc. You can find the link to a Google Document under the Share button, and remember to make it Public. Do this before you click Yes, I'm done .
