Research 2 Write

Valley1

The Research 2 Write Grant enabled us to use the Chromebooks in the classroom and allow the students to work in their books online at their convenience.

With the help of the Teacher, Media Specialist and Reading Specialist the students learned how to use Utah’s Online Library to do research on Utah’s Ecosystems.

The students added images found online, and created dioramas to enhance their stories.

The students spent time revising and editing their stories, learning how to cite their sources and create glossaries.

 

These books will be added to our Regional EBook Library and students in the six counties of the SEDC Region will be able to check them out.

 

The books may also be viewed and downloaded as a PDF by clicking here.

 

This project was made possible with a LSTA Grant from the Utah State Library and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The SEDC team has has successfully written an LSTA Grant for the amount of $8,965. These funds will be used to purchase 25 HP Chromebooks to be used by the 3rd-5th grade rural students in their school libraries. With the assistance of the school media specialist and SEDC staff, students will use the “Big6 Skills” to learn correct research skills and gather information. The district reading specialist and classroom teacher will teach the writing skills necessary to compile the content created by students in Google Docs. They then will be shown how to publish the book into Liber.io to share with others. SEDC staff will also publish several of the ebooks to a regional site for all to view.
