It never fails: the teacher announces during the first week that a 10-page term paper will be required as part of the class this semester. Some students heed the warning and (at least) begin to think about their topics; others, well, not so much. Weeks and weeks later, parents, teachers, and librarians all over town hear the sad words “I don’t know where to start!” from those ill-prepared students.
Scholar’s Secret Success-Finders make starting easy. Custom-created based on specific assignment requirements, Scholar’s Secret Success-Finders are designed to help students approach their topics in more creative, systematic, and scholarly ways. They prompt students to “go beyond Google” in their search for accurate, authoritative sources of information. And perhaps best of all, they remind students that actual human experts are everywhere — even right here in Indianapolis — and these experts can be fantastic sources into which to tap!
The list of Scholar’s Secret Success-Finders continually grows. Check out the newest one — on American photographer Ansel Adams. And contact me anytime if you’d like a Scholar’s Secret Success-Finder to jumpstart your student’s success!
