Complete the sections below by replacing the suggestions with the appropriate information. Also, add a descriptive title to your WebQuest by including it in the "Subject/headline" space above. Once you have finished, press the "Save page" button below.
- Introduction: What background knowledge is relevant? Provide the situation or context, the purpose, and roles or audience that pertain to the webquest. "Paint a picture" for the learner.
- Task: What is the AUTHENTIC goal? For example, in language learning, the goal would not be a language goal (i.e., subskill), but rather a goal that one might encounter in the real world. Describe the expected outcome of completing the goal.
- Process: Provide a list of steps to be completed. Depending on the maturity level of the group and the subject matter itself, these tasks could be negotiated with the learners. That is, the learners themselves may be asked to determine the steps required to complete the webquest.
- Evaluation: What criteria will be set that articulates the expectations for completing the WebQuest? How much of the assessment will focus on the actual performance and the level of content knowledge the learner will demonstrate? Rubrics are a good way to articulate this information to the learner BEFORE the WebQuest is to start.
- Conclusion: Invite learners to reflect on their outcomes and encourage them to articulate related interdisciplinary themes.
- References: Include any sources that support the webquest or that might support learners through further investigation of the topic.
- Teacher Page: Provide the URL allowing learners to access the teacher's webpage.
