NOTE: You can work in pairs (i.e., a group of two) for this assignment. Please let me know if you decide to do so.
You are going to create your own WebQuest for this assignment on a topic of your choice. Your goal is: (1) to choose a topic that is appropriate to the grade level you plan to teach. This WebQuest should be developed in Google documents (it will look something like this: WebQuest Student Example. (DO NOT copy any wording from the example as it is considered plagiarism).
Use Google docs to create your Webquest. Write this at the appropriate reading level for the grade you select.
The title and introduction are short in length but also should be indicative of the nature of the activity. The title should generate interest in the topic and provide motivation for the student to examine the topic further. This section should also indicate your name, position, school, school location, grade level, and subject area since the Webquest may be viewed by other persons.
The purpose of the introduction is to set the scene/case for an activity, formulate questions and general goals for the activity, provide an advance organizer for the activity and motivate students to participate in the activity. Teachers may also determine the prior knowledge and skills of the students during the introduction. Like all sections of the Webquest, the introduction is addressed to the students at their level.
The purpose of this section is to let the students know specifically what they will be doing during the activity, their individual roles, the step-by-step methods that they should follow in order to complete the activity, and the final product they are to create.
