This web quest was designed for our MEDA 5400 Course at ETSU to be used with 2 nd grade standards. It can be adapted for first grade and beyond. The web quest uses comprehension strategies along with media, research, speaking, and listening standards to create a unit of independent study.
These lesson would be supported by modeled examples in the classroom as well as introduction to the word processing, vocabulary, and expectations prior to the web quest.
The 4 evaluation rubrics would combine to make score of 100 on this whole unit. The student, their peers, and the teacher take part in the grading process. As we give credit to those who were generous to us, we only ask that you do the same. We have enjoyed this magical journey.
