Engaging in an Inquiry-Based, Iterative Research Process


In this unit, students continue the research process begun in Unit 1. Students begin to deeply engage in this iterative, non-linear process with the goal of deepening students’ understanding of topics of interest. Students continue to learn how to use the inquiry-based research process to gather, assess, read, and analyze sources, while organizing and synthesizing research to make claims about a specific research question or problem.

Bilingual Language Progressions

These resources, developed by the New York State Education Department, provide standard-level scaffolding suggestions for English Language Learners (ELLs) to help them meet grade-level demands. Each resource contains scaffolds at multiple levels of language acquisition and describes the linguistic demands of the standards to help ELA teachers as well as ESL/bilingual teachers scaffold content for their English learning students.
