Teaching students proper research methods is much more than enabling them to turn in the perfect paper. When research is done thoroughly, it gives students the ability to evaluate resources for credibility, avoid misleading misinformation and empowers them to think critically. That’s where Researcher, a tool within Microsoft Word, can help.

With Researcher, anyone can search for and incorporate reliable sources and content, including properly formatted citations, all within a few clicks and without having to leave the document.

“It’s really bringing the library to the students and enabling them to be good researchers,” says Aron Early, research technology specialist at Sammamish High School in Bellevue, Washington. “Being able to research sites, collect and curate your information all in one program is kind of amazing.”
