What are Webquests?
iwebquest.com works with dedicated teachers to develop
online lesson plans, units, and projects to promote higher-level thinking
skills. We refer to these online lessons, units, and projects as webquests.
Webquests break the larger units into smaller tasks to lead students through the difficult process of
questioning, researching, and then applying
their knowledge. First, webquests
ask students an essential question to creates a clear purpose, inspires
students to access prior knowledge, and create a level of excitement that
motivates students to explore further. Second,
webquests provide quality, teacher previewed resources.
Students have easy access to quality resources and can now focus on analyzing and interpreting their
resources. Third, webquests
provide you with an on-line activity that gives kids an opportunity to apply
(and solidify) their knowledge. iwebquest.com
packs these activities full of teaching strategies that make it easier for you
to engage your students in learning and then assess their work.
