Common Core Standards & FINDS Research Process

In conjunction with the implementation of the Common Core Language Arts standards in Kindergarten, the Department of Literacy and Library Media Services has aligned the Florida Research Model FINDS with the Common Core Language Arts standards. The FINDS research process provides a framework for project-based learning for students in grades K-12. Using FINDS, students can develop research skills to investigate, analyze, organize, synthesize, collaborate, create and share knowledge. For a brief overview of the FINDS research process aligned to the Common Core standards (K), check out the video tutorial (10 minutes) below.
