Put the RE in REsearch....

There is a difference between Searching for information and REsearching.

In research, you will find information about your topic and then you will synthesize the information to come to your own conclusion about that subject.
Assignment: Why is Shakespeare still being read today?  What is it that makes Shakespeare relevant?  Should Shakespeare continue to be taught in schools? 
See box below for Ms. Rivers' handout.
