These are adorable! I’m impressed by all of the information you squeezed into these panels. Have you checked out Kristin’s book on the topic? (http://www.abc-clio.com/product.aspx?isbn=9781591586869)
Sounds like a cool book! The book I reviewed might actually fit well with this book because it takes something like a science notebook and show how you can create inquiry-based nonfiction writing assignments out of them. Here’s the link:
I love the idea of a research notebook! And I think it’s important to show young students what research and inquiry look like so that they can get used to them at a very young age. Kuhlthau’s work could be something you introduce to students so that they know that research is an emotional process and they might sometimes be uncertain before they find the information they need. Even if you didn’t teach this directly to the students, it’s something I think that all teachers need to know about. I was talking to some pre-service teachers about Kuhlthau, but they had no idea what I was talking about!
