      • Search for the word "WebQuest" in any search engine, and you soon discover thousands of online lessons created by teachers around the world.
      • What is a WebQuest?
      • "A WebQuest," according to Bernie Dodge, the originator of the WebQuest concept, "is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are designed to focus on using information rather than on looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation."
      • WebQuests:
      • engage students in critical thinking activities
      • usually involves group work, with division of labor among students who take on specific roles or perspectives;
      • are built around resources that are preselected by the teacher.
        • Students spend their time USING information, not LOOKING for it.

    • The Task Your task should you decide to accept it (of course you will because it will be graded) is to create a WebQuest. It should be engaging and include critical thinking skills. The focus needs to be on website evaluation. The WebQuest subject can be entirely on website evaluations or you can use a topic from your content area and scaffold the quest with quality websites.
