FREEBIE This printable is a "Beginner's Guide" to note-taking. It introduces how to take meaningful notes, paraphrase, and cite sources with a focus on note-taking from written materials and Web sites. A definition and examples of plagiarism are included as well. Great to use for mini-lessons and to complement to research projects.
This is a project (instructions and rubric) for students to create a poster that looks like a facebook page. They read a book of their choosing on a scientist or an animal, and create a facebook poster. It is a great tie-in for common core. We did it as a joint ELA/Science project. It also includes a modified (lower) version that we used for some inclusion and ELL students.
