Too often students enter high school without being exposed to the research process and are often overwhelmed by the complex task of selecting and narrowing of a topic, developing research questions, writing the text, and appropriately documenting sources. This paper delineates specific learning activities that will simplify the process to make it manageable for developing readers and writers. The paper's literacy lessons emphasize both creative and critical thinking. It is divided into the following sections, one for each of the learning activities: Inquiry Chart; Computer Application; Notetaking: Pass the Notecard; and Cubing: An Expanding Technique To Stimulate Higher Order Thinking. (Contains 17 references.) (NKA)
