Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Whitley and Goodwin, authors of 99 Jumpstarts to Research (Libraries Unlimited, 2001), now address the needs of researchers in grades three through eight. They begin with suggestions that students write note cards, locate information in books, use the encyclopedia, and draw conclusions. For the older age range, there are suggestions for evaluating Internet sources along with a form consisting of open-ended questions. The 99 two-page topic guides cover such subjects as AIDS, the Berenstain Bears, the common cold, dinosaurs, endangered species, space exploration, and zoos. Each jumpstart is divided into sections on "Thinking About the Topic" and narrowing its scope; developing questions to guide the research; books to consult (newspaper and magazine resources are not included); Internet addresses; media sources; teacher suggestions; and a joke (some of which are in poor taste), riddle, or activity. Lois Laase's Helping Students Write the Best Research Reports Ever (1998) and Jean Dreher's Easy Steps to Writing Fantastic Research Reports (2000, both Scholastic) offer more detailed information on the research process. The strength of Jumpstarts is in its many ideas, its concise guides to the process, and its variety of information on each topic.–Ann Joslin, formerly at Erie County Public Library, PA
