Open Access Graduate Research Paper


The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there would be significant differences in the use of the research process between students who were instructed in its use by a teacher librarian and those who were not. This researcher gave two primary classes the same research assignment. One class was given instruction in using the Super3 Information Process Model by a teacher librarian and one class was not given this instruction. Data was collected from sixteen research papers that were then analyzed by the third grade teaching team using a rubric designed by this researcher. The results showed that it is beneficial to use the Super3 Information Process Model with instruction by a teacher librarian and the step of this research process that was shown to be most beneficial to primary students was the first step of planning.
