How to teach "synthesizing information"

Nice review of the nature and value of synthesis, with a request for TLs to share their thoughts on how they teach the process. The "winning" ideas will be featured in an upcoming article in School Library Monthly. Follow the link below to read the author's musings and participate in her survey. ( .)

"For an upcoming issue of School Library Monthly, we're tackling the  
Mount Everest of the research process: how we help students  
effectively synthesize the information they've gathered.

We would love to feature a variety of voices discussing how they  
tackle this issue and really move students beyond merely retelling the  
facts they have found.

If you have successfully climbed this mountain with students, we'd  
love to hear about it -- share your ideas at  

Submissions are open until December 20."
