Lesson 11: Introduction to the Research Project

11 1 learn about the research project

What is the meaning of the term censorship?

    • The suppression by authorities of information, communications, or media that are considered offensive or dangerous.
  • What examples of censorship have you heard about or experienced?
  • How might censorship affect libraries in schools and communities?
11.1 Learn About the Research Project
11 1 the research project

Turn to SA 11A. List answers to three questions on your paper.

    • What do we know?
    • What do we need to know?
    • How can we find out?
  • Draft a statement of the issue to be researched in your own words. Record this statement in the space provided at the bottom of page 11A.
  • Share your statements with your partner; revise your statements as necessary.

Censorship is an issue.

    • What is your sense of the meaning of the word issue?
    • An issue is a real-world problem or controversy that people are discussing or should be discussing.
  • Turn to SA 11B.
  • What is the difference between a topic and an issue?
    • Ex: Penguins= topic
    • Ex: What should be done to reverse the destruction of habitat that now endangers the survival of penguins as a species? = issue

11.3 Consider Two Points of View on Censorship
evaluate articles using standards of reasoning

Are enough reasons given to make the argument convincing?

  • Is the supporting evidence factual and correct?
  • Are the reasons clear? Are they explained thoroughly, or is more information needed?
  • Are the reasons and evidence specific, or are they general and vague?
  • Are the reasons strong and important, or do they seem to be included just so that the author has something to say?
  • Is the argument logical? Do the sentences seem to go together, and does their sequence make sense? Or does the paragraph sound like a set of disconnect statements?
