The ALERT processes: student research in the digital age

The ALERT processes lie at the heart of most Heritage Projects.

By introducing large and enduring questions during the initial phase of immersion in a topic and then by reflecting on new information and experiences in the light of those questions throughout the project, local studies can be linked to the enduring issues around which good curricula are organized.

By upholding high standards for the writing that undergirds all final reports and presentations, student work is kept accountable to district, state and national standards.

Heritage Projects are research and writing projects appropriate to a digital age that calls on students to add original research to the published record, rather than copying and pasting from previous research.
