Submit your lesson plan and then fill in the structure of a WebQuest
This assignment is the SECOND of a series of activities that will ultimately lead to a project in which
you create a WebQuest. At this point, you should be familiar with the idea of a WebQuest and will
begin forming an idea and plan for the WebQuest you will create.
In preparation for the assignment, you will need to review the following resources
FIRST, think about the TASK component of a WebQuest (what students will DO). Review each
of the websites below. Don’t skip them! Please note, you may NOT use a “Retelling task” for
your WebQuest. If you read the WebQuest Taskonomy, you’ll understand why.
Read about The WebQuest Taskonomy: A Taxonomy of Task
Read: WebQuest Design Patterns (http://webquest.org/sdsu/designpatterns/all.htm)
SECOND, think about assessing student achievement how well did they demonstrate learning?
The Webquest that you will create will need to contain an information rubric like though you will
find in the following Websites:

Brief description of activities:
How will the lesson be evaluated:
After you write the lesson idea, write a sentence or two under each heading below. When you

confuse the structure of the WebQuest (delivery system) with the structure of your lesson
idea (content) for the WebQuest.
Write a 1 paragraph introduction to your WebQuest that you can use when students begin
In 1-2 sentences (more is OK too), describe the Task that you will require students to

process section that will help students learn what you are trying to teach.
Briefly describe the types of resources (including online and real-world) you would like to

Please use a grading rubic – not a list or scale
Submit your lesson plan and the outline for the WebQuest using the Submission Tool using
the file upload or text box. Do not use the Drop Box option. So two things for this assignment: 1. The lesson idea and 2. Fill in the headers above with information relevant
