Women's History Research Project

Dive right into your research! No Sweat!

Hello 7th Grade Students!

Together, we are going to learn and explore different aspects of women's history. Each of you will be completing a research project and be learning about a problem solving model (the steps we take while researching) as you go about completing this assignment.

As you are progressing through your research project, please refer to the Kuhlthau ISP model provided on this page. This will guide you from start to finish, and keep you on track! Remember, your librarians are also here to help! Dont be afraid to ask questions.

Goals/Objectives

Students will learn about Women's History while compiling information that they gathered on various famous historical women. They will make personal connections to these women and use these connections to help them find a focus. They will create a thesis that draws conclusions based on the information they collected.
