The New York Public Library Kid's Guide to Research

Overview

Research has become an integral part of all school subjects. Kids design and perform experiments and observations. They go to the library and search the Internet to find out what life is like in another country. They interview Uncle Nate, survey their classmates, and read up on Abraham Lincoln.

Research is so central to the educational process for a good reason: it's useful in almost every walk of life. Knowing how to find the information you need is almost as good as knowing it...

Overview

Research has become an integral part of all school subjects. Kids design and perform experiments and observations. They go to the library and search the Internet to find out what life is like in another country. They interview Uncle Nate, survey their classmates, and read up on Abraham Lincoln.

Research is so central to the educational process for a good reason: it's useful in almost every walk of life. Knowing how to find the information you need is almost as good as knowing it already. It's not what you know that counts, it's knowing how to find out.

Provides guidance on how to do research, including how to use libraries and their resources, the Internet, and other sources such as interviews and surveys.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Every classroom teacher who requires students to do a research paper will shout for joy at the existence of this helpful volume. A younger version of the adult reference, the kid's guide offers help in selecting a research topic and guides the researcher to the finish line. Types of reference tools, including both a card catalog and a computer catalog, are discussed. Students are directed in using the Internet, magazines and newspapers, and given guidance about writing for information to be sent to them. Teachers of older students may also want to have a copy of this helpful guide on the shelf.
Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Remember your first research paper in elementary or middle school? Remember the confusion, the fear, and writer's block? This well written, reassuring, and informative paperback, sponsored by the New York Public Library, simplifies all that. All of the essential steps are covered in aiding the most novice researcher. Everything, from choosing a topic, to kinds of references, to interviewing people, is discussed with understanding. Every possible source is explored, with do's and don'ts along the way. New vocabulary is defined, and cautions on using the Internet are explained. Today's students are required to have more sophisticated skills, and this useful book would make a great classroom or home addition. Its examples and encouraging tone make it a book to be used again and again.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8--Short and complete, this book contains a wealth of material for young researchers. Taking notes, evaluating resources, using nonprint materials, conducting surveys and interviews, locating 800 numbers, sending away for information, searching on the Internet, and more are covered. Some practical advice is also imparted; readers are reminded to take their library cards and change for the copy machines to the library and are given tips about Internet etiquette and safety. The tone is conversational and cordial. While some students might not understand why the illustrations feature a lion, its actions enliven the pages, as do the short paragraphs with lots of headlines and bold print. A book that is appealing and informative, with content appeal across the grades.--Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC
