Your assignment is to build a WebQuest focused on a specific unit of study in your
content area. In the WebQuest students must be required to use knowledge
meaningfully. Your WebQuest must include content area and Common Core standards,
credible internet sources, checks for understanding, strategies for collecting information,
cooperative learning, a method of assessing students’ final products, and a rubric. The
WebQuest must be created through the website provided in class. The WebQuest will be
shared in class and you will receive peer feedback.
