    WebQuests WebQuests are among the most fascinating applications on the Internet for K-12 educators. Student centered and inquiry based, a WebQuest challenges students to explore the web for information and it is an excellent way to integrate the Internet into the classroom. Traditionally WebQuests have an introduction, a process, a task, a list of resources, a conclusion, and an evaluation. Bernie Dodge and Tom developed the WebQuest model in early 1995 at San Diego State University March. Bernie Dodge's WebQuest Page Virginia Teachers - I have begun listing the Virginia Standards of Learning numbers in red. Art and Music Careers ESL English ... The Architect's Chair - (6-8) With a partner, students will use the internet to; "sit in the architect's chair," as they design a home beginning to end.

    Literature Webquests What is a WebQuest? Why would I want to use a WebQuest in my classroom? Where can I find WebQuests on the Internet? How do I create my own WebQuests? How do I assess students' work? What is a WebQuest? A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which some or all of the information that learners interact with comes from resources on the internet, optionally supplemented with videoconferencing. There are at least two levels of WebQuests that should be distinguished from one another. (Bernie Dodge, San Diego State University) Level One: Short Term WebQuests The instructional goal of a short term WebQuest is knowledge acquisition and integration. At the end of a short term WebQuest, a learner will have grappled with a significant amount of new information and made sense of it. A short-term WebQuest is designed to be completed in one to three class periods. Level Two: Longer Term WebQuest The instructional goal of a longer term WebQuest is extending and refining knowledge. After completing a longer term WebQuest, a learner would have analyzed a body of knowledge deeply, transformed it in some way, and demonstrated an understanding of the material by creating something that others can respond to, on-line or off-. A longer term WebQuest will typically take between one week and a month in a classroom setting.

    Introduction to Mini-Quests
    The Internet has the potential to revolutionize education in this century. The vast and current resources available on the web provide exciting possibilities for new types of learning. But how can we structure that learning so it works for both students and teachers? As the Economics for Tomorrow project got underway, we talked with teachers to find out how the Internet is currently used in their schools. We needed to know what concerns they had about using Internet resources for classroom instruction and what would motivate them to use these resources to a greater degree. What we learned provided the impetus for the development of a lesson model called Mini-Quests. What Is a Mini-Quest?
    The Mini-Quest model is an adaptation of the Web Quest model. It was developed to address specific concerns that teachers expressed about using the Internet for regular classroom instruction. These concerns and the specific solutions that the Mini-Quest model provides are summarized in the table below.
    Need/Reality How Mini-Quests Meet This Need
  • While the web provides vast resources for in-depth study, many teachers are more comfortable using an Internet activity that doesn't ask students to search the web.

    A WebQuest for Grades 7-12
    Doris J. Kostal (Greenbriar Middle School)
    You are about to become an apprentice! What is an apprentice? In Colonial America, people learned crafts and trades from one another. The person skilled in the craft or trade was called the master. The person who learned the craft or trade from the master was called the apprentice. Your project will be considered a modern-day master/apprentice project (not colonial). You will choose a person who is skilled a craft or trades and can teach the craft or trade to you. This person is the master, and you are the apprentice. Your craft or trade is your "masterpiece". This project will offer you the opportunity to work closely with a family member or friend and learn a new craft or trade. Enjoy the quality time you spend together!
    You will learn a craft or trade from a family member or friend. Photos and notes will be taken as you learn the craft or trade showing all major steps involved, including photos of you working with your master. You will also research Internet websites regarding the history of your craft or trade. You will write a thank you/invitation letter to your master, along with a 5-7 paragraph composition detailing the steps and history of your craft/trade. There will be a formal school presentation of your display board, composition, and masterpiece. I hope you will learn a new skill, enjoy the time with your master, and have fun in the process!
