Research Strategy

During your four years at Ivy Collegiate Academy, you will be assigned a variety of research projects in different subject areas such as an I-Search Paper in English, a genetics project in biology, or an investigation of health issues in the news. Although the topics you research are very different for different classes, the research process, or the steps you follow to get the job done, are really the same.

Therefore, if you understand the process, you should be able to find your way successfully through any research assignment.  This is similar to the steps in problem solving and to the scientific method you follow for science lab experiments.

This guide includes links to portions of some excellent tutorials available on the Internet that explain and illustrate in more detail the steps of the research process.
