Writing a lesson plan suited for discussion within the context of a research unit was challenging, but I think I found a way to have students discuss the research process in a meaningful and beneficial way. My students will be working together in small groups to evaluate their found sources using the currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose (CRAAP) evaluation process. Students will discuss sources using the language and questions provided by CRAAP and determine if the sources they found should be used to support their research topic or answer their chosen question. See the full lesson plan in the link provided below.
