How are Research Assistants Chosen?
Choosing to be a Research Assistant is entirely voluntary ... but if you do it you can get a bonus mark on the unit test for each unit you undertake to act as Research Assistant. A maximum of one bonus mark is available for each student that publishes as Research Assistant.
IMPORTANT: There can only be one Research Assistant for each scribe post.
What Does a Research Assistant Do?
The Research Assistant must search the internet to find a minimum of two links in support of one of our daily scribes.
(a) One link must be to a site that reviews the content we have been studying in class as described in the scribe post for which you are acting as Research Assistant.
(b) One link must be to a site that has one or more interactive quizzes (self correcting) that deals with the specific content covered by the scribe post for which you are acting as Research Assistant.
(c) The links you find cannot have been published by any previous Research Assistant.
(d) Tag your post with i) your name, ii) the unit ii) Research Assistant.
How Do I Know What Previous Research Assistants Have Done?
Below is a list of the units and Research Assistants to date. This list will be updated as each Research Assistant posts the results of their research. Each Research Assistant's name is linked to the post they made with the links they found. This post is your "one stop shop" to find out what has gone before and learn/review when you need it.
