Audience: This is a High School senior class of 22 students. There are 12 boys and 10 girls. Of
those students, 13 are white, 7 are black, and 2 are Hispanic.
State the Objective:Today, the students will complete a WebQuest learning about the
history of abnormal psych to start the day. They will break up into groups of 3 or 4, log into the
computers available (in the classroom or designated computer lab), follow the WebQuest
directions from there. After completed the groups will individually discuss one or two things
that stood out to them, something they may have learned that they didn’t know before, or
something they found particularly interesting. Turning the attention to the class as a whole,
each group will tell myself and the class what they chose to discuss. The students will have the
entire class period to complete the webquest, discuss in groups, report back to the class, and
have time for questions or comments. They will complete this with 100% accuracy.
Select Methods, Media, & Materials: YouTube, internet, links, all on the WebQuest
Utilize Media and Materials: (Webquest) http://zunal.com/webquest.php?w=224800,
(YouTube) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkzyCp7QqzM, (other links)
Require Learner Participation:Students will break off into the assigned groups of 3 or
4. They will go to a computer where they will follow the links. As a group, students will work
together to come up with one thing that they learned while going through the WebQuest:
something they liked, learned, or found interesting. After everyone is finished, we will come
together as a class and each group (having one or two people being the main speaker would be
easier) will tell the class what they found interesting and why. We can share ideas and discuss
the history of Psychology.
Evaluate and Revise:
This will be graded entirely on participation. If each individual group comes up with something
they all learned and shares with the class, they have completed what I wanted you to.
10/10- Shared the topic, why you picked it, and what you thought was interesting.
5/10- Simply state a topic without explaining why is was chosen.
0/10- No topic was chosen or shared.
