  • searches for and chooses related sources to help explain topic or answer question.

  • takes notes, organizes, and tracks the sources of information.

  • uses details from limited sources to support claim or thesis statement.

  • avoids plagiarism by quoting, paraphrasing, or summarizing the research and by citing sources (in-text and formal works cited), following a standard format.

  • recognizes or recalls specific terminology that relates to research and presentation, such as: scope of inquiry, perspectives, synthesize, credible, claim/thesis, plagiarism, paraphrasing, summarizing, in-text citation, works cited, format, textual evidence, analysis, reflection
