Inquiry Learning & Webquests

Ever tried a webquest? If you have, you know that an authentic one requires an essential question and the following:


"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 on looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation." ~ Bernie Dodge, the originator of the WebQuest

Do you have a webquest to share or recommend?

Here is Sarah Sutter's Contribution:

Propaganda WebQuest at Wiscasset High School.

I have a webquest for a media literacy class that involves video, podcast, print or web media projects and is focused on propaganda - how it works and how to use it.

Feedback would be welcome. It's definitely a long project in my class, but maybe the resources could be used by others for a shorter version.

Thanks, Sarah. I've posted the URL on the original post as it seems to have been truncated (sp?) in this comment section. I plan to take a much closer look this evening when I have more time, as the propaganda theme is one that I think deserves much more attention.
