At the developmental level, most students are acutely aware that they lack many essential skills. However, they bring a sensibility and natural curiosity that often remain untapped. Introducing the art of research as a critical thinking and learning tool enriches students' experiences with writing and with the classroom environment. This workshop will feature unconventional research tasks that enhance student investment, such as personal observation, interviews, image collages, and collaborative I-Search narratives. These approaches validate the students' trajectory of experiences and insights and infuse their writing with true content!
