Great things come in small packages! A student doesn’t have to conduct extensive research in order to weave information together for a greater purpose. Research Briefs provide students an opportunity to utilize someone else’s research to analyze a topic or a theme. Comparing and contrasting details found within the briefs proves highly useful when making predictions and drawing conclusions. Research Briefs are the perfect solution to short answer responses, extended answer responses, and multi paragraph responses without the bulkiness of in depth research. Look no further to find ready-made sources for your students to begin citing within their responses.
