The Super3 Research Process for Elementary School

The Super3 Research Process

Yesterday, I covered the Super 3 research process with teachers. Its a good idea for students to get used to using a process for research based activities. When thinking of 21st Century Literacy Skills, using the The Super 3 is a great place to start. Here's a little more info about the Super 3:


The Super 3 is an information problem solving model for young children based on the Big 6. It gives students a process for tackling both school and everyday tasks. The Super 3 are:

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?


I created the following posters for teachers to use freely in their classrooms...enjoy!
