Research Skills for Students

Research Skills

Helping a student do research to find the answers, access the necessary texts or other materials is more valuable than telling them the answer. I try to help students access all available texts, whether they are in libraries, or the internet, or elsewhere and improve their research skills.


Once the research is done, we discuss the topic and I try to help them get a better understanding and apply the information.

As Noam Chomsky says in this video:

Where to look, how to look, how to question, how to challenge. How to proceed independently to deal with the challenges that the world presents to you and that you develop in the process of your self education and inquiry and investigations in cooperation and solidarity with others. That’s what an educational system should cultivate.
