This resource introduces middle years students to study and research. Each page invites the learner to try high interest, appealing exercises, which will help students with a new skill, reinforce an existing skill or assess a student's performance or understanding. This is no ordinary fill-in-the-blanks way to learn. These exercises are fun. Study and research is appropriately centered around a detective theme. Students will enjoy the activities and develop an understanding about research and how it works.
