• Want to impress your teachers and gain college-ready research skills? 


    Although Google and other similar search engines are easy to use, they are not always reliable and valid.



    When thinking about conducting research for a project, use the FINDS research method developed by the State of Florida.  

    F – focus, find your topic

    I – investigate, look for information about your topic

    N – notes, take notes from the information, putting it in your own words

    D – develop your paper/project based on directions from your teacher

    S – score, based on your teacher’s requirements, make sure you have all the components before you turn it in.
