Critical thinking, analyzation, and resource management are all essential skills for any learner.

In High School Research Boot Camp, we’ll be focused on how to research accurately and efficiently using the plethora of resources available, how to identify credible sources and examine bias, and use this knowledge to dive deeply into the subjects we are passionate about.

There are three Level of the Research Boot Camp

The Middle School Research Boot camp will cover the basic foundation of solid research skills as well as building the knowledge students will need for high school-level work.
The High School Research Boot camp will cover and/or reinforce the basic foundation of solid research skills, and will also go into more depth on topics such as primary sources, scholarly articles and studies, expanding the scope of resources, and preparing for post-high school academic or vocational work.
The Research Boot camp for Parents covers much of the information included in the MS and HS Research Boot camps, but from the perspective of facilitation. We’ll be focusing on strategies to motivate and guide students in research and how to continue building their skills.
