Next week, March 8, our students will turn in their completed research portfolios to Project READ. So this week (week 9), the groups were working fast and furious to continue compiling their portfolios and write appropriate recommendations based on their research. This is the part where the students apply critical thinking skills by synthesizing the research they found. Students also took a very brief 5-question review "quiz." The quiz covered the big concepts we covered, like evaluating information and the invisible web. In addition to the portfolios due next week, we assigned two reflection assignments. The reflection helps students tie together their service with the course curriculum (information literacy skills, in this case). The first assignment is a reflection on the entire quarter; the second reflection assignment asks students to reflect on their alternate service project (educating friends, family, coworkers, etc. about Project READ and the literacy needs in our community).
