The Big6
What is it?
Where did the Big6 come from?
Two guys named Mike Eisenberg and
Bob Berkowitz created the Big6 so
that students would have a good
set of steps to follow during the
research process.
Big6 Creators
So what are these 6 steps?
Step 1. Task Definition
Step 2. Information Seeking Strategies
Step 3. Location and Access
Step 4. Use of Information
Step 5. Synthesis
Step 6. Evaluation
Ahhhh! What does
all that mean?
Step 1. Task Definition
--This is the first step where we define our “information problem.”

--You're working at home to choose a topic that we will research here in school.
Step 2. Information Seeking Strategies
-- The second step is to brainstorm places where we can find information about your topic.

--These are called “sources.”
Step 3. Location and Access
--The third step is to find sources with information.

--This step will take some time. We will check Destiny for library books, check World Book Online Encyclopedia for articles, and use RADCAB to evaluate, or judge, websites to find good websites for research.
Step 4. Use of Information
--The fourth step is to use information from our sources and take notes. We will learn organized ways to find good pieces of information in our sources and take notes.

--We will also learn about how to give credit to the sources that we use, which is a very important step. We need to make sure that other people know we are using these books and websites for information.
Step 5. Synthesis
--The fifth step is to organize your information and create your product, whether that means you write a paper or make a project.
Step 6. Evaluation
--The sixth step is to evaluate, or judge, your research paper or project before you give it to your teacher.

-- Did you try your best? Did you use good sources? Does your final product answer your information problem?

The Big6 is six steps that students can use to research a topic.
