Teachers College: 50 Thorndike
November 30, 1999 (4 pm- 6 pm)
Our goal for this workshop will be to develop the skills necessary for
designing a WebQuest- a web based strategy for structuring student work
using the resources available on the world wide web.
You should come to this workshop with a unit, theme, or topic that lends itself to research and/or investigation by students
4:00-4:15- Introduction to WebQuest.
We'll look at an example of a WebQuest designed by a 3rd grade teacher to facilitate her students' study of Native Americans.
4:15-5:00- Web design. Practicing the skills necessary to implement a WebQuest
We'll use a web authoring program to review how to design and create a web page that will allow us to make a WebQuest. As you proceed with your work you might want to consult the "help sheet" as a reminder of how to perform certain tasks.
5:00-5:45- On your own.
Design and create your own WebQuest.
5:45-6:00- Logbooks and Next Steps
Please remember to bring your logbooks to the workshop so that we might collect and read them before our next meeting.
For the last three meetings of our workshop, you will be working independently on individual projects. The last few minutes of this workshop will allow for an opportunity to finalize your project and to suggest specific forms of assistance for future workshops.
