Surveys to Secondary Research

Logo for Surveys to Secondary Research
Often second language learners are asked to write a research paper by reading sources from secondary research and to give evidence to support their topic, yet they do not understand the kinds of information that formulate secondary research.

I really enjoyed reading your lesson plan. Your lesson plan includes a variety of pedagogical strategies such as engagement strategies, practice opportunities, feedback, setting goals, and scaffolding.

I have not heard of the websites that you used to create the surveys and graphs. I cannot wait to implement the Kids’ Zone website into my math curriculum. It is very kid-friendly and would benefit my students in so many ways.

It is important for teachers to make learning fun and keep the students engaged with strategies beyond a textbook. Allowing students to apply their learning to the world beyond the classroom teaches them more than just basics of the language.

Technical Remarks:

The links worked well!
