Relevant details

With this T4T tutorial, students select the information or facts that are significant or useful for a specific research question and purpose.

This tutorial includes instructional suggestions for teachers (introducing the strategy, practicing the strategy, reinforcing the strategy, applying the strategy to everyday teaching, and assessing use of the strategy) and resources for students (introductory activities, data charts, student guide and self-assessment rubric).
