WebQuests: Getting Deeper into the Content

From the WebQuest Overview page (http://webquest.sdsu.edu/overview.htm):

"A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The model was developed in early 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge with Tom March, and was outlined then in Some Thoughts About WebQuests."

In this mini-module, we will actually work through a WebQuest on WebQuests - to get inside of a WebQuest and find out what makes a good WebQuest. We will look at examples of foreign language WebQuests in our evaluations, using 2 different rubrics.
