  • Research: Why?High Schools That Work recommends that students prepare a research paper in every class every year

    In classes other than language arts, expect students to do at least one researched piece each semester

  • BenefitsThe research process helps students deepen their knowledge of a specific content area by immersing them in the language, concepts and intellectual work of the discipline.

    It helps them become independent learners and competent problem solvers in any career field.

  • Future ProjectsThe CRHS would like to work on a continuum of standards and expectations for research (maybe a packet everyone can use within research for their content)

    The CRSD vertical team is going to be discussing research, and how that will fit into the curriculum map they are working on.

  • Paired Activity #1

    Working with your partner, prepare a paraphrase of the following passage:Some years later, reflecting back on my college experiences, I realized something else. The outside, non-Indian world is tribeless, full of wandering singular souls, seeking connection through societies, clubs, and other groups. White people know what it is to be a family, but to be a tribe is something of an altogether different sort. It provides a feeling of inclusion in something larger, of having a set place in the universe where one always belongs. It provides connectedness and a blueprint for how to live. Lori Arviso Alvord: Walking the Path between Worlds

  • Paired Activity #2

    Working with your partner, prepare a summary of the following passage:

    In the States, young people who dont feel ready for college can work for a few years and then apply when they feel more motivated or mature. Young Japanese people dont have the same chance. For older adults to go back to school to have a second chance at a job or an artistic career or personal fulfillment is practically impossible. - Kyoko Mori: School
