REACTS Taxonomy

The REACTS Method of Thoughtful Research was created by Barbara Stripling and Judy M. Pitts to help students through the inquiry process. This handout describes the six levels that make up the taxonomy and provides examples of verbs and assignments that correspond with each level. It can also be found in their book Brainstorms and Blueprints: Teaching Library Research as a Thinking Process (Libraries Unlimited 1988).
