Time to Re-visit WebQuests

posted Jan 1, 2012, 12:20 PM by Lin Kuzmich
WebQuests are a great way to increase rigor and relevance and infuse tons of literacy into learning.  Attached is an activity you can do with teachers, a rubric for evaluating the creation of WebQuests and a step by step criteria for creating great ones.  WebQuests are easy to learn to create or have students create them in lieu of other presentation tools.  Student WebQuests can be part of a class jigsaw with students learning from each group created WebQuest.  It is always more rigorous and relevant to have students create learning opportunities for each other.  In addition the activity sheet contains some websites that have pre-made WebQuests to get teachers started.  While this is not a new approach, it is a great one to revisit given the increased rigor level and literacy load of the new state standards. Tip: Remember that WebQuests should always include some form of inquiry and some type of relevant application.
