 Phase 4: Research

Week 4: 12 - 18 March 2012
Dear All,
Greetings and welcome to phase 4 (Research and Answers) of the Learning Circle. This phase will last 5 weeks during which you will research and post the answers to the questions posted by your Learning Circle partners. Planning and organizing your work is an important 21st century skill, so teachers' guidance is important in this phase. 
Update of the Learning Circle
Well done! We are glad to see that all of you formulated good questions and that you posted them on time.  Do check the update!

Agenda for the week
We are at the beginning of the Research & Answers phase. Your students are now going to research and respond to ALL the questions posted by their Learning Circle partners. To make the Learning Circle process interesting, it will be ideal to share responsibilities in your class. We advise you to divide the work amongst your students in such a way that you answer some questions on a weekly basis. It is important to include photos, diagrams, movies, or other materials illustrating your research. This process will take 4 weeks to complete. Students find it very stimulating to see draft answers posted in the wiki; it will stimulate them to work hard(er) on their own research. If your answer is not complete yet, no problem, just add "work in progress" at the end of your draft answer.
Important Information
Criteria for quality answers:
  • answers are clear and posted on time.
  • answers respect cultural diversity.
  • the answer always starts with repeating the question.
  • answers should reflect that research has conducted.
  • it's OK to use Google for research, yet stimulate students to process what they have found and mention the source of their finding by adding the URL or other source
  • post photos, diagrams, tables, presentations or others which can illustrate you research
  • the minimum number of words should be for a Research based  LC - 250 words in one answer 
Please remember the steps of posting text information in the Wiki space
Step 1: compose your question in your word processor E.g MS Word.
Step 2: Copy the question to Notepad
Step 3: Click on the "Edit" button above and paste your question in your class space
Step 4: Click on the "Save" button to save your work

We wish you lots of learning and fun during this Learning Circle,
Natasha Cherednichenko
