My daughter is now 12 and her ability to do research, to evaluate useful sources and sift through the millions of bits of data available online for factual information has increased dramatically. No longer do I hear her complain, “But I don’t know where to find it!” She knows exactly which resources will be the most help for the specific project. The lessons are clear and to the point, guiding but not leading the student by the hand. In the end, the student will know how to begin their research project and spend more time doing research instead of wondering which source is better. They will already know. I love the way these courses focus on the student being in control of their own work. As a parent, I will not always be there to help her find things. This is one more useful life skill she now has. Thanks for a great product!
As a HomeSchooling parent, I think it is critical that my girls know how to get information for themselves. They need to learn 'How to learn' and that is amply covered in this course. "Research" breaks down into manageable chunks of learning, the information that the children need to be able to make astute inquiries of their own. This information is written at the right level for the age group and was understood by my girls, even though it was perfectly suited to stretch them and make them think. Both Step 3 and Step 4 "How to do Research" offer the students an understanding of the resources that can be used to "Research" (get more information) and indeed goes further by offering ways and means of utilizing those resources! - J.D., Australian Homeschool Mom
A special how to course for Step 3 students, ages 9-10 who read fairly well, and for older students still developing literacy before starting Step 4 studies
A brief but crucially important course that teaches the student some of the most valuable skills one can have, skills no student (or person) can do well without in today's information-based civilization.
Students are often not taught the basics which underpin education. Such basics could include what is a book? What is the Internet? Now that you know what books and the internet are, how can you use them to learn things? What is research? What are the best ways to get research done? Where should one look for answers to questions?
You get the idea, and so will your Step 3 student, working with this simple, effective course! Improve all of the student’s school work by providing him or her with the tools they need today!
