    • By the end of this WebQuest, you should have learned about different types of characters, points of view, setting, plot, conflict, climax, resolution, and how these literary elements relate in a story. You should have strengthened your invidual and group working skills and sharpened your PowerPoint skills, your essay skills, and your presenting skills. If you still have questions, discuss your questions further in class and check out the OWL site link on the Process Page for further information. Teacher Page This WebQuest is to teach the literary elements to a 7th grade class and how these elements relate in a story. Let the students choose the book to relate these elements to and the assignment will peak their interest more. It will not only use WebQuest and the links provided, but Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint. It should take 2 weeks to complete this WebQuest.
