Bookapedia term 2 research skills

Skill 1:
TITLE: skimming and scanning
WALT: create criteria to evaluate sources
So Suzanne asked us if we could try skimming over this page about Japan's new train
So we did she asked us five and we had to answer them and then we had to do some research for our science 

Skill 2:
TITLE: Summarising
WALT: Persist to find information to gain a wider perspective

This week we were asked to find reasons why we don't want to be one if these people

Roman Galdiator
Sir Frances Drake
WWII pilot
Medieval knight
Mammoth hunter
Amelia Earhart

I chose Amelia Earheart.
This is why I wouldn't want to be Amelia

Title: note taking
WALT: organize our notes to make connections and find gaps.

For this task we could research anything we wanted but were needed to take notes about what your researching. Im researching the history of sketching. 

                                                           COMING SOON!!!!!!!!

Evaluation: this term I think I have learned a lot in Bookapidea. I personally think that summarizing was the hardest because its hard to remember everything and wrote the sentence in your own words.
I also think skimming and scanning is the easiest because your quickly looking over the page for facts to write down ( or you just want to become smart ;). ) next time I think we should work on summarizing the most. Devin 

Feedback: great job I think that was very cool. -Emma O
Feedforward: I think you should have more facts on the fact tree. -Maya L

  1. It is a skill to be able to summarise the big idea of something in a few words. It makes you think about more than just the words you have read but also what the author means. You are already getting to practice this skill with your cloud note taking and writing, but we will have to keep working on it in Bookapedia too! Keep seeking out a variety of different sources to gather facts - this will help you to have for a balanced opinion.
