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.
