  8. 8. Meeting some Russian writers(teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page A WebQuest for 10th Grade (English) Designed by Cody Brutnon [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  9. 9. Introduction (teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This Webquest was created by Cody Brunton for Educ331 with several purposes. First of all it was a learning tool for myself to become acclimated with the actual idea of a Webquest. This is a very helpful tool for students to learn and is a great way to incorporate technology into the classroom. I also designed it with the purpose of it being an introduction to an actual Russian literature course or even just a section about Russian literature in a normal English course. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  10. 10. Learners (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This project is designed for 10 th grade English students either in a Russian lit course, a world lit course, or even an introduction lit course that has time availability for a small Russian lit section. It also will incorporate some Russian history. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  11. 11. Curriculum Standards (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Students upon completing this Webquest will: -Have a greater understanding of the Russian Culture. -Gain a background knowledge of several Russian writers that will be discussed in the course. -Practice evaluation skills. -Practice their skills as writers. -Practice skills of web navigation. -Use of both sides of the brain through creative interpretation. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  12. 12. The Process (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page . Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion <ul><li>Divide into teams of 3 travelers. </li></ul><ul><li>You will first travel across the cold Russian lands to the home of Leo Tolstoy ( http://www.online-literature.com/tolstoy/ ). </li></ul><ul><li>Here you will study the Great Russian author and find as much information as you can about his personal life. </li></ul><ul><li>Now, one of the travelers in your group will create a sketch of Tolstoy using the information you found at his home to add details to the picture that describe who he was as a person (beliefs, goals, works…). </li></ul><ul><li>As you continue on your journey you will come across the dwelling ( http://members.tripod.com/~halonine/pushkin.htm ) of possible the greatest Russian poet of all time, Alexander Pushkin. </li></ul><ul><li>While visiting him, ask him to read you some of his shorter poems; pay great attention as his words can tame the wildest of souls. </li></ul><ul><li>After listening to several of his great works, as a group choose one that you all like the best. </li></ul><ul><li>One of the travelers in your group will need to write this poem down using word processor.

You will need to touch on all of the major events in his life, including some of his works, so make sure you ask enough questions while visiting him at his home. </li></ul>This project is designed to be completed in 2 class periods. One for the research and study of the Webquest and one for the actual production. Groups can be divided in any way each student will be working on an individual aspect of the quest. Make sure that each student has his or her own goals for the project. If computer space is limited you could possibly have one half do the research one day and the other do it the following.
  13. 13. Resources (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page All you will need to complete this webquest is; -Enough computers for the groups to work on -Creative materials such as paper and colors -The internet -A PowerPoint program Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  14. 14. Evaluation (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page The first and most obvious way to decide if the students have learned the material to the necessary extent will be to evaluate the material that the students turn in. Did they get all the necessary material that was asked? Does it seem like they have the type of information on their projects that leads you to believe they actually understood something beyond the surface of these characters or did they seem to just cut and paste plain boring facts into the projects? If you are unsure if they got the information that you desired they learn through the experience, give them a short, low pointed quiz with easy basic facts they should have picked up on through the research. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  15. 15. Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page -Tell students that today they will begin a section on the writers of Russia. -Explain the idea behind a Webquest and briefly show them how to navigate through it. -Divide into groups of your choosing. -Set them free to begin their “quest” -Be prepared to answer and guide them through any technical problems they may have as some of your students will not be a s computer savvy as the others. -Have them hand in their projects upon completion. -Debrief the students on what they have done. -Explain any questions they may have on the topic. -Explain how this will relate to the rest of the course so the students will understand the significance of the work they have produced. -Ask for feedback so you can modify the assignment down the road to better suit the desired outcome. -Grade projects and return timely. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  16. 16. Conclusion (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Hopefully after implementing this project into your classroom your students will have a better understanding, and even a passion for the Russian writer. I would wish that in looking into the aspects of these individuals lives there would be an interest imbedded into their minds. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
