Step 3: Become an Expert

Have you ever been called an expert before? Pupils analyze how to break down sources of information using group work and individual skills. They begin to understand the tools of becoming an expert on a topic by using subtopics and investigative reading as they complete the third installment of a 10-part County Solutions - High School series. Once finished, they know how to become experts in their own right on topics of choice.
