A research summary is an overview of a student's key learnings from a source. Writing a research summary helps students think through what they understand and don’t understand.
A student's research summary should answer (or partially answer) their Natural Next question (NNQ). Their NNQ is a bite-sized research question that they believe is the most important question to answer next to get to their goal.
