A WebQuest is an inquiry-orientated activity in which all or most of the information used by learners is drawn from the Internet. They are designed to utilize the learner’s time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support the learner’s thinking at levels of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
A Rubric for Evaluating WebQuests, San Diego State University
Here you'll find a ready-made template for scoring or evaluating student WebQuest projects, complete with scoring categories. Checklists with additional scoring criteria to evaluate project fine points are also provided.
Since it’s Black History Month, the following WebQuests may be a perfect addition to the curriculum you are presenting to students:
Echoes of a Dream
(Language Arts: grades 9-12)
The Great Migration
(Social Studies: grades 3-5)
Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
(Multidisciplinary: grades 3-5)
As always, if you are looking for assistance, ideas or resources, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
