As a part of their unit on Media Literacy, junior English students were asked to create electronic research collections based on topics of their choice.  Their final products have been published as “Pages” on Facebook.  These collections serve as examples of the high-quality, in-depth research our students can accomplish, having been provided the necessary tools.  These students located, evaluated, and selected information from a variety of online sources and explored numerous media such as text, pictures, graphs, charts, videos, and other appropriate material they uncovered through their research.  They practiced utilizing Diigo, a social bookmarking and information organizing tool which allows users to bookmark, highlight, annotate, save, and share digital copies of online sources.  They then created Facebook Pages where they posted their findings, along with a summary and response for each source.

If you login to Facebook, you can explore their Pages:

Ben's Page: Nascar Safety Improvements

Catherine's Page: Vegetarian Eating

Tristen's Page: Using Wind to Create Energy

Madison's Page: How Cloning has Evolved
