  • Taking Notes
  • Converting Notes to Paragraphs
  • Revising, Responding, and Editing
  • Producing the Final Copy
  • Including Additional Materials

Also included in this section are exercises in writing topic sentences, a chart of bibliography entry formats, and a report evaluation form.

Each lesson includes:

  • step-by-step teacher directions
  • several reproducible information sources—mock magazine, newspaper, and encyclopedia articles
  • posters
  • graphs
  • maps
  • timelines
  • a science investigation
  • a note taker
  • a final report form

The 10 report topics are:

When students are ready to begin their own research, a checklist for writing a report is provided. Students can move through the same eight-step process independently. Guided Report Writing concludes with guidelines for using the Internet as an information source, including a checklist for evaluating Web sites.
