Behind the Books: Guiding Students Through the Nonfiction Researching and Writing Process

A few weeks ago, I stumbled onto this post by Laura Perle (@VennLibrarian), Library Director at Milton Academy in Milton, MA, and found a link to a FANTASTIC kid-friendly graphic that outlines the steps of the nonfiction research and writing process, from choosing a topic all the way through creating a bibliography.

I know it's a little hard to read here, but check out this full-size version.

Don't you just love it? It’s absolutely perfect for students who are working on nonfiction reports or projects. And it could easily be simplified for younger children.

Not only is the graphic available on the school’s website, allowing students to access a variety of helpful web links for further information, Dr. Perle and her colleagues also used it to create bookmarks that students can use as a guide anytime, anywhere. What a terrific idea!
