We want YOU to know what's going on!

This week in the Library:

Ms. Goodwin

This year, I will be introducing the Super 3 Framework to students. This framework will help provide a structure for both problem-solving and information navigation. Please take a quick look at the stages below so that as students begin to transfer the process to classwork, you will be able to help support the process.

1. Plan

What am I supposed to do?
What do I need to get the job done?
What do I want it to look like when I'm done?

2. Do

I must locate the things I will need (books, websites, materials etc.).
I need to ask questions, read, and take notes.
I need to use the information I find to create something.

3. Review

Did I do what I was supposed to do?
Am I proud of what I've done?
Is there something else I should do before I say I am done?
