WebQuests

What are WebQuests?

Webquests are inquiry-based activities in which students use internet resources to acquire information; although other resources may also be used in conjunction with the online resources; resources such as library books, textbooks, etc.
 

Creating WebQuests

Introduction: Provide students with background information and scenarios such as roles they will play. Keep student interest in mind when creating the activity so that it is fun for the students.

Task: Properly describe what students will have completed at the end of the WebQuest. This is where you mention how they will be expected to publish their findings.

Process: Describe the steps students will go through to complete the task. You can also embed the links at each step.

Resources: This part consists of a list of Web sites, print resources, etc. Again, you can include these resources in the Process section.

Evaluation: Students will know how their work will be evaluated by reading the rubric you add in this section. There are many Web sites online that walk you through creating rubrics.

Conclusion: Summarize and reflect. How could it have been done differently?
