As the media specialist at your school site, you have been charged with the
task of developing a WebQuest to support the curricular goals for a unit of
study. To familiarize yourself with the WebQuest model, you may want to read Some Thoughts
and explore the information that can be found on its companion website at WebQuest.org.
Identify a grade level and topic of study. Using the format that can be
found in the above resources, develop an original, short-term WebQuest that includes
the following components:
Your WebQuest should be completed in either Microsoft Word
or PowerPoint and it must have functional hyperlinks. You must have at
least five activities/steps within your Process section. Your Information
Sources section must include a reference page/bibliography of all resources you
used for research purposes or for inclusion in your WebQuest. Remember
that this is meant to be an instructional tool for students; therefore, it
should be engaging and interactive. The use of graphics and other
formatting tools is encouraged
